We are trying to simulate the same exam experience that the students will experience at the end of the GCSE course which will include 2 papers for each of the sciences. Year 10 students should be using their exercise books and textbooks to revise the content covered during the GCSE course which started at the beginning of Year 9. All Paper 1's will be written during science lessons and all Paper 2's will be written in the School hall.

The online version of the GCSE textbooks can be found at www.pearsonactivelearn.com and their school email username and password will allow them to access the textbook. The link to this can also be found on the school website.

Good luck to all our students.
