As one of the leading Sixth Form Colleges in London, Chelsea Independent College specialises in supporting and preparing students to achieve their very best results. Chelsea Independent College is offering A-Level and GCSE students a chance to benefit from a intensive revision program over Easter in preparation for summer exams. Students will benefit from exceptional teachers with years of experience, state-of-the-art facilities and small class sizes providing a concise programme of study.
We welcome students from other schools and colleges to join our Easter revision courses and also offer the opportunity to stay in our purpose built boarding accommodation if required.

The revision courses are run on a similar basis to our teaching courses. They concentrate on three key areas: improving understanding of key topics, raising awareness of the key skills and knowledge that examiners are looking for and finally, improving examination technique.
Easter Revision efficiency can have a dramatic impact on a student’s grades. The courses can be demanding both in terms of time and commitment but they can build invaluable examination confidence and improve performance.
All students receive an outline of the specification they are studying and a full set of examination papers with accompanying model answers. Throughout the course students will be set examination questions culminating the course with a final past paper examination. Examination questions are marked with tutor commentary on how improvements can be made. This process aids understanding of problem areas and identifies techniques that can be applied to the revision process. Upon completion of the course a final written report is sent out with guidance on how to effectively prepare for the actual examination.
