GCSEPod

We are delighted to announce that all students now have access to GCSEPod, the award-winning digital content and revision provider used by over 1,250 schools worldwide.   

Students in all years at The Bulwell Academy have access to GCSEPod’s library of over 6,000 ‘Pods,’ 3-5 minute videos designed to deliver knowledge in short bursts.

GCSEPod makes learning and revision much more manageable. Pods can be accessed via the GCSEPod website on many devices. This means that if a student has a school device Pods will replace links to YouTube that they are currently unable to access. 

One of the best things about GCSEPod is that you can download any Pod and watch them at any time, in any place, with or without internet. 

PARENTS/CARERS

We recommend that you talk about GCSEPod with your child – check that they’ve successfully activated their account and encourage them to make use of this amazing resource. Once they’ve activated their account, they can browse the GCSEPod library and create their own playlists – just as they would when they’re listening to music.
