GCSEPod in my school
Within this section
Madani Girls School, Leicester
I would just like to say that your videos are a great help for me, especially considering that I am a visual learner. I think I can see a very evident difference in my grades when I revise from other sources to when I revise from your videos.
King James’s School, Huddersfield
The follow up calls are particularly useful as they give you time to ensure your short term objectives are met before your next call. I personally have found that they are invaluable, as you are able to bounce ideas off each other, plan out strategies together, and feedback to someone on your progress. It shows that GCSEPod are providing a continued service, not just selling a “product”.
Handsworth Wood Girls’ Academy, Birmingham
Just a quick email to say thank you for all the support and help you have provided. I appreciate the time you took out for the termly meetings and liked to keep in touch to observe our progress so you can provided support as and when required. Once again thank you for providing a fast and reliable support/help and making the experience of using/setting GCSEPod positive/enjoyable.

As students themselves commented, the content made available via smart phones apps such as GCSEPod makes history come alive in the classroom; it makes the content more accessible than a textbook and encourages independent studyRead case study
Droylsden Academy, Manchester
I knew GCSEPod had to be a crucial part of what we are doing - making a difference to every individual and changing lives! GCSEPod is the one and only product I endorse; it is a must for every school. The value versus impact is undeniably fantastic. It was a pleasure to work with the amazing GCSEPod team at BETT, where I was able to share the success of launching GCSEPod at two Academies and discuss the quality of the product and the outstanding customer service that GCSEPod deliver!
Wright Robinson College, Manchester
I was convinced I couldn't do Maths and it was really hard so I didn't even bother to make the effort but GCSEPod showed me that it wasn't as difficult as I thought. It has helped me 100%.
Aston Manor Academy, Birmingham
The weekend prior to the exam, I studied all of the relevant podcasts for the Additional Science module. I was so happy at the end of the paper as there wasn't a question I couldn't answer!
Longfield School, County Durham
GCSEPod is relevant and up to date for a large number of subjects. It promotes independent study and has encouraged me to set third party revision resources with complete confidence. It’s easy to install and intuitive to use for both staff and pupils.
St Augustine’s Catholic College
I’d be hard pushed to find anything of similar value with the same impact as GCSEPod. The impact was immediately visible.Read case study
Aston Manor Academy, Birmingham
Monitoring of students' usage is easy and very informative. We will be analysing pupils' downloading data against their exam results and we anticipate there to be a high correlation between podcast access and heightened grades.
British School of Ulaanbaatar
Helen Newies, the GCSEPod Subscriptions Manager, was able to answer every question and show us how GCSEPod could be implemented effectively at our school. I just wish all the companies I have to deal with were as efficient and knowledgeable as she was.
I was captivated by the detail it was able to provide on the individual topics of all my subjects. It’s a practical way of enabling me to access this knowledge through my iPod and is very beneficial as it allows me to continue my revision whilst at the gym.
Bewdley School, Worcs
GCSEPod have been an excellent, cost effective, addition to our learning resources. There is no doubt that this innovative tool has helped us to increase our overall results by a staggering 15%.
Dyffryn School, Neath and Port Talbot
GCSEPod has had an immediate impact upon the way in which our students have prepared for their examinations and the thoroughness of their revision
The Priory Ruskin Academy
The pleasing thing was the massive increase we achieved in our 3 A/A* agenda which was 17% in 2011 and went to 25% in 2012. Ofsted were really looking at this figure and GCSEPod was a significant part of the strategy to raise this.
Aston Manor Academy
We're thrilled about the service. From the initial contact to GCSEPod’s continued advice and guidance, the support has been outstanding. The setup process is swift and simple; GCSEPod provide everything necessary for students to access vital revision resources at the click of a button.
The informative and concise podcasts add an exciting dimension to students’ learning and the technology is already in their pockets, so why not use it?
East Midlands School
With the help of GCSEPod’s short podcasts, my Science grades have soared!
