We want to draw your attention to a new, on-line revision resource that we have purchased for Hamledon pupils to use called GCSEpod.

GCSEpod is an award-winning service that gives your child access to thousands of professionally produced Pod Casts for their various subjects. Consistent use of just ten minute chunks is proven to support achievement whatever your child’s target grade is.

The GCSEpod website can be viewed using tablets, traditional desk top computers or by using mobile devices once the relevant ‘app’ has been downloaded. We recommend that you discuss GCSEpod with your child to ensure that they have successfully activated their account and encourage them to make use of this service throughout their revision.

All pupils have already been pre-registered with GCSEpod and simply need to activate their account and choose a username and password: this process will be demonstrated to them in school. To access GCSEpod for the first time, pupils should follow these simple steps:

1) Go to and click “Login” in the top right hand corner
2) Click “New here? Get started.”
3) Select “Pupil”
4) The pupil should enter their name, date of birth and type in the name of their school. Your school should appear in a dropdown list. Click on the school in this list to confirm it.
5) Select a username, password, and a password hint to help you remember the password.

There is a quick start guide below and a letter that will be sent out to parents.
