Creating a focus for study

When the pressure is on to get results, give your students some serious revision time - with some fun thrown in.

With so many distractions and pressures on students, it’s often difficult for them to find the time and the space for revision. PGL Revision Weekends help keep them motivated, focussed and engaged, with our unique combination of adventure activities and teacher-led study time.

Spreading revision out, rather than cramming, can lead to more effective study, which is why we provide adventure activities in-between study sessions - to give students the opportunity to let off steam and come back refreshed and ready for more academic work.

Revision facilities

Students enjoy a comfortable environment in which to work, 12 to each classroom containing conference-style chairs and lightweight tables with most offering large-screen projectors and internet access. Classrooms are easily reconfigured for different classroom layouts to cater for the type of revision you have planned for your group – for example, projects, group work or individual study.

Activities

Revision sessions are complemented by adventure activities, ranging from problem solving and initiative exercises to raft building and giant swing, to provide a balanced and stimulating daily programme.

Learning outcomes

A PGL Revision Weekend can help reduce feelings of pressure and stress by providing focussed classroom time for students to make progress with revision. The structured adventure activity time provides a mental break and the chance to burn off excess energy.

PGL’s adventure activities can help improve transferrable skills such as timekeeping, planning, and mini-project management, which students can then apply back in the revision room. Our instructors will highlight these skills within each activity to help your students make those connections.

Other common outcomes include improved motivation, increased confidence and better relationships and cooperation.
