GCSE Pod is an award winning mobile revision and study package which Toynbee school subscribes to for the benefit of our pupils.

Whilst the podcasts are available for ALL pupils to use, it is inevitable that Years 10 & 11 will find them most relevant and therefore they are the heaviest users.  Years 7, 8 and 9 may also find the content useful to re-inforce their study of particular topics across the curriculum, and Gifted & Talented pupils may want to listen to podcasts to accelerate their learning still further.

How Does it Work?

Pupils have unlimited access to 12,000 + hours of curriculum relevant GCSE learning and revision material delivered in the unique 'Pod' format.  Students are able to download this content to their mobile phones and/or pcs at home and listen to the pods where and when they wish.  The podcasts do not take up huge amounts of memory and being mobile, pupils can plug in their personal headphones and revise on the way to and from school, as they ride on the bus, at home at any time and even on holiday. The podcasts have all been mapped to the specific exam specifications that each subject at Toynbee school is currently entering.

Each podcast delivers a concentrated burst of knowledge lasting between 3 to 5 minutes.  They are audio and visual in format meaning that they are accessible to our VI pupils and clear for all pupils to understand with key words highlighted.
