Keep working…

Mr Kydd.


Year Thirteen Revision

Posted on March 27, 2013 by Mr Kydd

Exclaimation mark - YellowPlease find here the flyer for the Easter revision for the Russian dictatorships course. You should also note the two hour Wednesday sessions in the new term. These will run every Wednesday with a one hour overview of content, followed by essay planning work.

See you there.

Mr Kydd.


STOP PRESS – the materials from this session are on the Russian dictatorships section of the site (so that they can be more easily found by next year’s students).


Year Twelve Revision

Exclaimation mark - YellowThe Year Twelve Revision timetable is now published. You can get a flyer from one of your teachers, and the first session is this week.

The Year Thirteen timetable will be published after half term.

If you have any specific concerns that you would like built into these revision sessions then please do let us know.

Mr Kydd.


Christmas Support.

Apologies for the cartoon (from Private Eye) but what is it they say about humour having one foot in reality ? Obviously a good number of you will be preparing for AS papers on Elizabethan government or Italian Unification in January.  It has been great too see so many of you in the after school content sessions this term, but we thought some teacher time and technique work over the holidays would also be helpful. This will be as follows.

Friday 28th December

Location – The History block (entry via the main gate please)

10.30 – 11.15 –

Meet the examiners. What are the lessons to learn from the Summer 2012 examination season ? T9

11.20 – 12.40 –

  • Unification document work with Mr Podesta – T9
  • Elizabethan essay planning with Mr Kydd – T10

12.45 – 2.00 –

  • The Elizabethan session will be repeated for those students sitting both papers – T10
  • If you are missing any notes / have any concerns Mr Podesta will be available in T9.

We look forward to seeing you then / Mr Podesta will be bringing mince pies.

A few last points.

  • Please bring your notes with you (there will be some group essay planning work in both sessions).
  • Please email either of us with any concerns that you have before the day. We can then build these matters into the sessions.
  • If the weather looks like it might cause us to cancel, then please check on this site. We will post if school is unable to open.

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    I have used some quotes from the Kolko source in the Investigations handbook and would be extremely grateful if you could provide me with the page number references for that source.

    Best Regards,
    Akash Patel

      Apologies – we can not really help you. The source was taken from an old examination paper.

      Kind regards,
      Alan Kydd.
