Revision Sessions
Cefn Saeson has run after-school and holiday revision sessions for a number of years, and pupils should see their individual subject teachers for dates and times of these sessions.

The sessions are of great benefit to students, increasing their confidence and giving them the ability to achieve their very best in their GCSE’s.

In addition there are a number of online revision guides available for free, including the BBC Bitesize website, link below:
