ks4 revision resources

Revision and extra learning:

The best support that parents can offer students in the teaching of the history is to take them to places!  We have local history on our doorstep (much of which is free), for example, Guildford Castle, Godalming Museum etc.  If you wish to explore further places such as Hampton Court Palace, the Naval dockyards at Portsmouth and many National Trust properties provide a useful insight to different periods in time.

At Key Stage 4, many students wish to purchase revision guides to help their studies.  Edexcel exam board have published specific revision guides which include practice questions (more questions are accessible from the exam board website).  Below you will find links and ISBN numbers to the most appropriate revision guides.
