GCSEPod Revision Resources

We are delighted to announce that Harris Academy Orpington has recently invested in GCSEPod, the award-winning digital content and revision provider used by over 1,700 schools worldwide.  

As a subscriber, your child now has access to GCSEPod’s library of over 6,500 ‘Pods’, 3–5-minute videos designed to deliver knowledge in short bursts. GCSEPod makes learning and revision much more manageable: every Pod is mapped to an exam board and contains all the right facts, quotes, keywords, dates, and annotated diagrams that your child needs for GCSE success – all neatly organised into topics and exam playlists.   As well as Pods, GCSEPod also has a host of Student Learning Activities which are designed to help students commit content to their long-term memory. Alongside this is the award-winning Check & Challenge tool which provides quizzes for your child to test their knowledge and to track their progress throughout the academic year.

One of the best things about GCSEPod is that it is so easy to access! You can download any Pod to your child’s mobile device, and then they can watch them at any time, in any place, with or without the internet. It’s like they’re carrying a whole set of textbooks in their pocket. Make sure you download the GCSEPod app from the App Store (Apple and Android are supported) to access this feature.

For more ways to support your child using GCSEPod, please visit www.gcsepod.com/parents where you’ll find lots more information, a specially created Parent Toolkit with information on making the most of your child’s subscription and links to their fantastic upcoming parent/carer webinars: https://www.gcsepod.com/podup-presents-parent-webinars/  There is also a handy video for parents below. 

Your child has already been registered with GCSEPod, so all they need to do is activate their account by following the instructions below if they haven’t activated their account already. 

  • Go to www.gcsepod.com and click “Login” in the top right-hand corner
  • Click “New to GCSEPod?  Get started.”
  • Select “Student”
  • Enter your child’s name, date of birth and the school’s name.
  • Create a username, password, and a password hint to help them remember the password.

We recommend that you talk about GCSEPod with your son or daughter – check that they’ve successfully activated their account and encourage them to make use of this amazing resource throughout their GCSE’s. Once they’ve activated their account, they can browse the GCSEPod library and create their own playlists – just as they would when they’re listening to music. Students should be aiming to watch at least 5 PODs a day in order to help them with their subject revision.
