GCSEpod

GCSEPod is the award-winning digital content and revision provider used by over 1,400 schools worldwide.  As a subscriber, your child has access to GCSEPod’s library of over 6,000 ‘Pods,’ 3-5 minute videos designed to deliver knowledge in short bursts. Every Pod is mapped to the correct 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. 

During this period, teachers may be setting your child work on GCSEPod.  This may take the form of Assignments, which students can access and complete via the GCSEPod platform, or teachers may recommend specific Pods for students to watch at home to continue their learning.

All pupils have been provided with a username and password. If you have any questions regarding GCSEPod please contact Mrs P. Abernethy who is leading on GCSEPod, or message support@gcsepod.com
