The GCSEPod is a learning and revision tool that covers 20+ subjects across the curriculum, all carefully mapped to the main exam specifications. It is proven to engage students, consolidate subject knowledge and accelerate progress.

The Pods are designed for any device and can be watched both in and out of school. It's a bit like carrying a huge pile of textbooks with you everywhere, so you have experts read and explain everything clearly including all the right facts, quotes, keywords, dates and diagrams on screen. You won't need to use it for long to feel the impact. Consistent use in brief 10 minute sessions is proven to support achievement right up to A* (0-9).

You can use the Pods on Android or Apple devises, mobiles, tablets, laptops and computers.

At BSCA we sometimes use a website called Seneca Learning to help to promote independent home learning. If your teacher asks you to complete some work at home by using the website, here is what you need to do:

  1. Please use browsers like Chrome, Firefox or Safari to access this tool - .

  2. Use your BSCA email address to create a free account on Seneca Learning (you will only need to do this once).

  3. Enter the class code that your teacher will give you.

  4. Complete the activities that you will see there!

That's it!

Your teacher will give you feedback on the work that you have completed because they will be able to see what you have learned. It's a simple way to work independently.
