We are delighted to be able to offer a copy of Powerful Teaching - A Guide for Parents by Patrice M. Bain to the parents/carers of every year 7 pupil in school. 

This parental guide provides a great insight into the science of learning and contains information on how we learn, retrieval, metacognition and spacing as well as providing lots of tips for learning at home. 

Patrice Bain, the author of Powerful Teaching, has shown thousands of students with a wide range of abilities how to increase school performance. Having worked with cognitive scientists in the classroom for over half of her twenty five year teaching career, Bain knows how students learn and has developed strategies that increase memory, grades and retention of material.
