On Thursday 8th October, the UV girls attended the first of three seminars, given by James from Elevate Education. Over the last 11 years Elevate has developed a different approach to study skills. 

"We went through revision techniques and the best ways to get A*s in our GCSEs. James made the whole experience really fun and enjoyable by giving us memory tests to prove that we learn better with images and colour. For example, we all remember he has a dog called Ben and a red front door. He taught us simple but effective ways to revise during both the term time and holidays. He suggested reading past notes at the start of each lesson, this way we would already have done over 50% of our revision without even realising it.

We all learnt a lot from the first seminar and we thought it was a rewarding and effective workshop."
