    Designed to encourage independent working, these four revision workbooks have all been written to go alongside students’ work and revision in school. They will work well with any of the exam board GCSE (9-1) specifications and can be used in the classroom and / or at home.

    Each book contains a programme of 30 separate sessions that each focus on a key topic to help students succeed at GCSE.  They are designed to take around 45 minutes so could be used in a class or their home environment. A full set of answers is provided at the back of each book.

    Each full colour book costs £7.95 (plus postage and packing) and can be ordered from the HfL shop by both parents and schools.
