Students at a school in Hadley Wood are learning new techniques on revising for end of year exams
An alternative study programme has helped to make an “instant” impact on a girls’ school.
Instead of having one lesson on the techniques of revising and studying, girls at St Martha’s School in Hadley Wood, Enfield, have changed their approach.
Study skills group Elevate Education are now delivering short, sharp sessions throughout the year to help the students when it comes to those dreaded exams.
The system uses young graduates who have recently been through the pressures of exams and can relate to the students.
Headteacher at the school, Matthew Burke was delighted that his students had taken very easily to the new techniques.
He said: "Elevate has had an instant inspiring impact on the students, parents and staff at St Martha's.
“Their use of presenters who empathise with the students by providing practical strategies based on solid research have left all parts of our community very clear about what needs to be done.
“This extends beyond preparation for public examinations and covers all aspects of learning from how they organise themselves and work from the start of Year 7 to when they leave us for university at the end of Upper 6th.
“I would recommend them to any school who is serious about helping their students not only fulfil but exceed academic expectations.”
As well as academic sessions, the independent school will also receive practical techniques to help give an overall balance.
