Sixth Form: Getting better at Studenting!

One of the key parts of our vision in our Sixth Form is to provide our students with exceptional support. Ms Cadwell and Mrs Richards-Gourves very kindly agreed to lead a session on effective note taking with Year 12 and Year 13 students to help them develop this key skill which is fundamental to their success on their sixth Form journey.

“Being part of the note taking session, kindly delivered to us by Mrs. Richards-Gourves, Ms Caldwell and the Y13 Biology students was such an eye opening experience. As students, we always have been taught what to learn but never how to learn effectively. One of the most important takeaways from this session was that our notes should be something we always expand on and go back to as we learn more. From the amazing examples that were given, one thing that I have started applying to my own notes was cutting and pasting the section of the specification I am going to be taking notes on before I start making the notes. This is extremely helpful for ensuring that I cover every element on the specification and that I only add what is absolutely essential. Finally, another valuable skill I learned was how to successfully implement the use of flow charts and diagrams in my notes to help me establish connections between concepts and be able recall things more easily. Despite lasting less than an hour, this note-taking session definitely helps to prepare us for the challenging academic year ahead.”

The note taking session held gave me immense invaluable knowledge on how to further my abilities in studying. By taking a look at former A Level students’ notes, I have learnt techniques such as implementing the specification into our notes along with the benefits of it: our exam is based on the specification, so we should be keeping track of it! Creating visuals and including diagrams are also some of many skills talked about that I now use for the understanding of content. I will definitely be applying all skills taught to future revision and am completely grateful for having had a session on the skills and importance of how to take notes. Thank you so much Ms. Caldwell and Mrs. Richards-Gourves for the wonderful session!



A massive thank you to Ms Caldwell, Mrs Richards-Gourves and the Year 13 students for helping and supporting our Sixth Form students.
