GCSE Revision Course

This residential course supports students who are blind or vision impaired in Years 9, 10 and 11 with preparations for GCSEs. Study sessions focus on Maths, English and Science and on study skills and exam technique. Evening activities are provided so that students have the opportunity to socialise and relax. Participants have the choice of VI curriculum sessions (which will include Independent Living Skills, Mobility, ICT and specialist Braille Codes). Students will stay in residential accommodation in the College houses (may be shared bedrooms). As well as learning a range of skills to support their general learning, students will learn specific approaches to revision and exam techniques such as:
  • UEB Maths
  • Practical Science
  • Tactile Diagrams
  • Study Skills
  • Exam technique
By the end of the course students will understand that there are others with the same issues, but that a vision impairment does not need to be a barrier to success. Students enjoy being one of a group, who work together to find their way around the College and socialise together. Participants on the course will be offered accommodation in the residential houses on site and meals will be taken in the College dining room. In the evenings the students can enjoy a range of activities such as tandem riding and ten pin bowling, making new friends and sharing experiences.
