Revision Guides

 

Wisepay

Each autumn, revision guides are made available to Year 10 and 11 students for purchase through Wisepay. By placing a large order, the school is able to secure significant discounts on the RRP of many guides so this represents the opportunity for parents to purchase revision guides at a reduced price. This year, revision guides will be available for purchase through Wisepay between 23rd March 2017 and 28th April 2017 and 6th September 2017 - 6th October 2017.  Books will not be available from school outside these dates.

Revision guides are also available for purchase from bookshops and online retailers throughout the year. If you are purchasing revision guides from elsewhere and wish to check which edition you require, please refer to the list below which provides details of the suggested revision guides for each subject including ISBNs.

There are multiple guides available for some subjects. If students are unsure which guide(s) they require (e.g. Foundation or Higher Maths), they should ask their subject teachers.

Free school meals

Each year, the school provides a set of revision guides free of charge for all students in Year 10 who are entitled to free school meals or have been at any point in the past six years. If you believe you may be entitled to free school meals but have not applied, please contact school as soon as possible.
