Events for schools and colleges

Revision camps

Birds eye view of a group of students sat at a table studying in the EBS building.

Please note the below event has now passed and bookings are closed. We will be planning our activities for next year soon and will update this page accordingly. In the meantime, you can access our recorded skills workshops to brush up on your revision technique!

We understand it can be really difficult to stay motivated with revision over the Easter break, so we are here to support students every step of the way. Students can book independently or teachers/advisers can book on students’ behalf to attend our 1-3 day revision camp! Students can expect state-of-the-art facilities, regular breaks to explore our beautiful campus, dedicated revision workshops to refine your study technique. 

As a non-residential revision camp students can also access resources virtually.

 Monday 8 April Study skills workshop: Effective Revision

Students can spend a lot of time revising, only to find they cannot recall much of the information later on.  This session will explore how our memory works and consider how we can use this knowledge to enhance revision strategies.

 Tuesday 9 April Study skills workshop: Critical Thinking. 

How to control the weather, why reading makes your feet grow, and the danger of watching Nicholas Cage movies.

Critical thinking is the skill of assessing evidence and information to make robust and sound judgements.  In this session we will look at examples of how poor critical thinking can lead to incorrect conclusions, and use what we have learned to undertake some simple data analysis (no maths required!).
