Learning to Learn: Memory & Retrieval

The Mastering Memory Programme equips students with the skills they need to revise effectively. The programme gives students a better understanding of how their memory works and applies this understanding to a variety of revision techniques. 

These revision techniques are based on ‘retrieval practice’ which is backed up by a wide range of cognitive science research. 

  • Students in years 7-10 receive a Mastering Memory lesson once every half term during PSHCE.
  • Our year 11 students have a Mastering Memory workshop once every 3 weeks as part of the school’s period 6 programme.
