An explanation of our PiXL resources:


PiXL Independence – subject specific booklets with activities for revision, retention and extension of learning starting with small multiple choice questions and leading up to large essay style questions. The format ensures that each stage supports the next and so learning is intuitive. The PDF format has links with accompanying videos and web pages pertinent to the topics.
PiXL Festival of Futures – a group of resources that support the preparation for Sixth Form study. These are not subject specific, rather they aim to develop you cognitive (thinking) and organisational skills.
PiXL Progression – a collection of reading, vocabulary lists and links to prepare students for the next stage of the course to be completed during holiday time or as an extension to the course.
