Key Stage 3

We recommend the use of BBC Bitesize and SAM Learning. Students should use their exercise book to see which material is relevant and seek help from their teachers if needed.

Key Stage 4

On the HAP (under ‘Permanent Resources’ then ‘Science’ then ‘AQA GCSE’ are both revision booklets and homework booklets. Students have access to the textbooks via Kerboodle and combined revision guides and workbooks are available from the LRC. SAM Learning is also a worthwhile revision resource.
