Dear Parent/Carer

I am writing to invite you and your child to attend a revision skills event at The St Leonards Academy on Wednesday 2 March from 4:45 - 6:00.

There will be a presentation from myself about what research tells us are the best (and the worst!) ways to revise that I will give in the main hall at 4:45 and then repeat at 5:15.  Following each presentation there will be an opportunity for you to talk to the English, Maths and Science teams about specific revision strategies and resources for their subjects.

If you have any questions about this event, please let me know.

Yours sincerely

Mr Christopher Dean
Assistant Principal
