Welcome to the parents' pages of our website. These have been designed to answer some common questions about how to help your child at home.
What revision guides do we recommend?
We recommend the revision guides produced by CGP Publishing for SATs and GCSE. We currently provide all Y9 students with a revision guide in preparation for their SATs. At A level we recommend those produced by Letts. All are available from Amazon. Click on the images below for more information about the book you are interested in.
We also recommend any workbooks and exam practice pack that are designed to complement each specific revision guide.
What syllabus do we follow?
At GCSE most students follow the AQA Co-ordinated Dual Award science syllabus (specification). Those who opt to study separate GCSEs in science follow the AQA Co-odinated Chemistry specification.
Yes. Just choose the level of study from the top of this page (KS3, GCSE or A Level) and you will find resources like past papers or notes and links to other sites with more help.What textbooks do you use?
If your child has chosen to study A Level Chemistry this year at High Storrs details of the books required to study the course are outlined below.
However, books are available on loan from the school, along with the specialist studies material required at A2. All we require is a deposit of £15 for all the required materials. This will be returned at the end of the course if the book is in a reusable condition. Please make cheques payable to High Storrs School.
We recently purchased copies of Advanced Chemistry for You (ISBN : 0748752978) for all sixth formers as a reference book to supplement the course. This is also provided on receipt of the deposit mentioned above. It explains topics from GCSE level initially and then goes into the detail required for the course. It is in a similar format to the textbook used at GCSE and should be familiar to High Storrs students.
