Dean Close School is pleased to launch a brand new Revision Course for Easter 2016, bringing a new resource to students in the Cheltenham area, and beyond, who are looking for extra support at this critical time in their education.

The course will be hosted on the School’s campus where its impressive blend of Victorian and contemporary buildings, all located on one peaceful 50 acre site, will provide an ideal location for a stimulating and productive A Level & GCSE revision facility.

Places will be available on a residential or non-residential basis and, alongside their intensive study programmes, Easter revision students will have access to the School’s library, computer suites and sporting facilities which will contribute towards a rounded and rewarding revision experience.

All subjects will be organised and delivered by a team of highly qualified and experienced teachers, utilising the very best educational talents from across Gloucestershire, to maximise students’ performance in their summer examinations. With a maximum of eight per class, quality time is guaranteed for each and every student.

The courses will take place over five days, from 4th to 8th April 2016, combining intensive subject revision sessions with the opportunity to use the School’s recreational facilities.

• How to organise study time

• Making good use of study materials

• Reading texts with clear understanding

• Taking effective summarised notes

• Methods to revise and learn material efficiently

• Understanding the focus of exam questions

• Writing clearly-argued answers

• Responding well to stimulus material

• Organising exam time effectively

Headmaster, Bradley Salisbury, said: “We are delighted to be the first School to bring a Revision Course to Cheltenham. Open to all students, it will meet a number of different needs such as help with focus, exam technique or just the right environment in which to revise. If students wish to reside here, they will benefit from our superb boarding and recreational facilities which offer an all-round, positive revision environment”.

Places will be available on a first come, first served basis so early booking is advisable.

Payment of the full course fee is required to reserve a place for your selected subject, at the time of booking. For full details, to download an application form or book your place follow this link:https://www.deanclose.org.uk/Courses
