Equip students with the right learning strategies and mindset for a successful transition.

1. The Best Strategies for Making Information Stick

2. The Power of Getting Organised 

3. Managing Your Thinking Space

Motivation & Memory: How to Study and Save Time!

Effective learners not only work hard, they work smart. As part of an on-going Year 11 programme called Memory and Mindset, designed by TailoredPractice, Orchard Park Year 11 students participated in the third of series of workshops to both inspire them to succeed as well as teach them, step-by-step, how to revise at home—from the most impactful learning strategies to creating systems to space out their learning.

The day kicked off with Cameron Parker, a motivational speaker, who told the students, ‘We should focus on the small steps because if we do that the small wins will result in a big win." Then students circulated to different workshops led by Orchard Park English, Maths and Science teachers to guide and simulate what to do when revising at home right down to what to have next to you at your desk to how to know if the revision worked! 


The day culminated with a session on how to make a revision calendar that is realistic and effective, led by teacher Ian Clarke and Tricia Taylor, director of TailoredPractice. ‘These organisational skills students are learning now will be habits they can use for a lifetime—for school, work and life,’ said Tricia.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to you. I honestly convinced myself (apparently my family too) that I was going to completely and utterly fail, but you got me through it all. I got an A and a B in English when we all were discussing retaking them!
