There is a great website called ‘Prezi’!

It is basically like Powerpoint, but on the internet, so everyone can share and explore each others ideas! They are (normally) really visually appealing, which can make subjects seem more interesting and by using things like images and YouTube can help discover new points of view. You have to sign up, but it is free and once you are registered there are millions of files to look at; they will be brilliant when revising.

I have found some that I think will be massively helpful to you guys!


Have a look, you might find useful informationfor other subjects as well!


Grammar Monster

If anyone is struggling with grammar and punctuation, check out this website. It’s a brilliant way of finding answers quickly and is recommended by Exeter Uni so it must be good!

It covers most grammatical issues and even tests your knowledge so you can see if you are improving.


GSCE English blog!

The new GCSE English blog is now up and running! New resources will be uploaded as the academic year goes on. At the moment there are links up for Jekyll and Hyde, Macbeth and Lord of the Flies. I will be uploading some more material this week.  Looking for something you can’t find? Just type it into the searchbar! If you have any suggestions for the blog, or are having problems accessing any of the materials then please let us know.

Happy revisioning!

Welcome to the St Cuthbert Mayne GCSE English blog!

On this blog you will find lots of resources and materials to help you revise for your exams. The material is organised by units at the top of the page.


If you have any English queries or you want some revision material please come and find me. I will be in the library on Wednesday lunch times and there are revision sessions on a Wednesday afterschool. These sessions take place in J3 (Jubilee block). You may have also seen me around supporting in your classes. If you have any questions please come and ask!

My office is down in the library behind the library desk; please come and pester me with you questions and worries, that’s what I’m here for!

Hope to see you all around school🙂

Miss Butler
