When it comes to revising for exams, good intentions aren’t always enough. Effective preparation requires organisation and self-discipline…
The Easter Revision Week, run by Iwerne Holidays, aims to provide the structure and supervision that makes study rewarding and enjoyable. It is intended for those working towards GCSE, AS, A2 and IB exams. Each student will meet daily with a personal tutor to discuss plans and progress.
A number of experienced independent school teachers will be present to give guidance with exam and study techniques, and to offer tuition in most main subjects. While we are able to cover the majority of mainstream subjects, and try to cover as many as possible, we may not be able to offer tuition in all exam subjects, dependant on the availability and specialisms of our volunteers and teachers.
Regular breaks are built into the programme. Every afternoon a range of sports and activities will be offered. In addition, there will be plenty of free-time in the evenings to make friends and chat with fellow students and tutors.
The aim of Iwerne Holidays is to encourage Christian character and values. Each day ends with an informal meeting, including a short talk looking into aspects of the Christian faith and its relevance to everyday life.
