GCSEPod provides podcasts which you can watch online or download to play later on your iPods, iPhones, Blackberry and Android devices and tablets. All podcasts are enhanced with text and images and are designed to support students in the classroom, with their homework and during exam time.
So many students at Outwood Academy Adwick already have mobile technology in their pockets and we hope to harness this existing technology to engage all students with their studies in an innovative way. GCSEPod has already been proven to have a significant impact on A*-C performance and we aim to make it an integral part of learning for every GCSE student studying at the academy. Podcasts are organised into subjects and you can further tailor your searches to forthcoming examinations.
Students can follow the link to GCSEPod at the bottom of this webpage. They will be taken to a registration page where they can logon using the drop down boxes.

How has the LPPA helped Outwood Academy Adwick?
“The LPPA process has helped us focus on identifying the fundamental areas of staff and teacher relationships that need a change at a whole school level. This focus has then let us plan, both strategically and practically, to improve how the school meets parents’ needs so they in turn help their children’s learning. This, linked with our new mentoring systems, has led to a significant rise in standards across the school over the period.”
