Past Paper Practice:

Regular practice of past papers during lesson with these being set as homework tasks to support students with their revision.


Class Based Revision:

Priorities for revision topics will be determined after careful review of student performance across all topics throughout the course as well as mock results. Students will colour code their confidence levels with each topic and this will also inform topics chosen.

Firefly Links*

* Firefly links will only work for Trinity staff members, students and parents.


Key questions on firefly within each section. These are linked to past paper questions and required knowledge.

Students complete revision tasks during lesson time. Every section on Firefly has “revision tests” that students can use to self assess their progress. Teacher support helps to ensure that all students meet their objectives.

Students regularly make use of past paper questions which are worked-through in groups. All firefly sections have past paper questions embedded as well as mark schemes.


Students will be set up to 90 minutes of homework per week. Typically, these come in the form of Firefly tests which contain a range of question types, from multiple choice questions to extended writing activities. These homework tasks will aim to support the learning that takes place in lessons as well as recap of previous topics.
