This site is here to help students in four main ways, as the menu above partly shows.

  1. Interactive quizzes make learning more stimulating than simply reading. To make your own interactive quizzes click here.
  2. Revision notes relating mostly to GCSE English are available. Although not a substitute for thorough investigation, they will help to refresh students' knowledge.
  3. There is a page of study essentials to help students with their work in English and Media. Each listing has a link so you can go straight to to find out more.
  4. There are links to sites that have been assessed for their useful content.

Thank you for visiting!

Students: if you're using this site in a lesson let me know what you think.
Teachers: if you use this site with groups of students please tell me about it.

Thank you!

Guidance on writing about poetry and a list of the key poems for AQA English (Specification A) have been added to the site. Access them from the Revision Notes page.

It's never too early to start revising. Whether it's English or Media Studies, GCSE or AS/A2 Level, there are suggestions to help on the study essentials page.

Mock exams will be here soon!
