Distance Learning - Year 11

In the event of closure, it is vitally important that Year 11 students continue the preparation for their GCSE examinations at home. Below is a schedule of home learning that we would like every learner to follow with a key focus on English, mathematics and science. The vast majority of the work available will be through our online learning platforms of Hegarty, Century and GCSEPod. Login information for these sites as well as the Year 11 revision Portal can be found in learner’s planners and has been updated today.

Learners are expected to complete 5, one hour sessions each day as a minimum although we would hope that with the GCSEs fast approaching they are able to complete more. Each day has a minimum of one hour for each of the core subjects of English, mathematics and science alongside  other examination subjects such as History and Geography. Online learning will be monitored by senior staff and learners contacted if there is little or no evidence of work.

If you experience any problems with the learning resources, then you can contact staff using the email address: When emailing please include the full name of the learner, their form group and their date of birth.

Use resources below to revise for exam. Complete the practise questions on paper.



You have been set some revision questions relating to the following 3 units of work:

  • Norman England 1066-1100
  • Conflict and Tension 1918-1939
  • America 1920-1973: Opportunity and Inequality

Completing these will help you revise key themes and ideas ahead of your main GCSE exams. 

To help you answer the questions and support your revision in general you have also been set some GCSE POD videos (

You should use the pods, your revision guides and the unit revision powerpoints to complete these questions.

You should also make sure you have made your own revision materials (flash cards etc) and are using these regularly to test your recall of key knowledge.

I’ve also loaded up my pre-made revision cards – don’t just print these though as you will struggle to remember stuff.  Use them – alongside the powerpoints – to make your own revision materials.
