It’s almost time…

We’re fast approaching the start of the main exam season, as I’m sure you’re aware.
Firstly, a big good luck to everyone with exams in the next few weeks.
The final cut of revision sessions has now been made.  Please remember to bring with you all the stationery you’d bring to your exam, and a pad of paper.  We will be starting on time, so please try to arrive slightly before the published start time, especially if you have never been to the venue before. If you’re not currently attending, but change your mind closer to the exams, they can still be booked via  
Finally, those of you who will be having sessions in June, July and onward will shortly be receiving an email from me regarding booking and paying for sessions over the summer.
See you all soon,

March updates

Revision classes
Please complete your revision class booking by the end of the day on Saturday.  If you are having problems with the online system, please email your requirements to Richard, and he will issue you with a log-in to arrange payment.  Please note that after Saturday, any revision class with fewer than two participants will become a normal session for the person who signed up, or be cancelled fully!
Richard’s availability in March and April
There are a couple of day swaps in March and April.  Please check the availability page (link:Availability) to see if this affects you.
Building work on The Moorlands
There is currently a lot of building work on the Moorlands, as the local housing association are replacing the roofing on of all their properties.  The road is passable most of the time, but if you have large vehicles (e.g. 4x4s), or do not like driving through narrow gaps between hedges, vans and equipment, it may be sensible to park on the South access road, or alternatively on other nearby roads, and walk around.  Please avoid parking on the pavements on Sherburn and Sunderland Roads, as this not only can cause access problems, but also severely impedes visibility for other road users.

Reminder: Summer revision “early bird” booking closes soon

A reminder to everyone that early bird booking for this year’s summer revision classes will close in 11 days, on Saturday, 4th March.  At this point, the booking fee will increase, and the rooms for these sessions will be confirmed.
For more details about the classes, please visit Summer revision sessions 2017, and to book visit
We hope to see you there!

It’s beginning to look a lot like half-term…

Half-term is nearly here… and for some people, it’s nearer than others.
This year, half-term is spread across three different weeks across the Mallard Days area, and as such, there are a lot of changes to Richard’s normal timetable across the next few weeks.
Bonus slots
Next week, Monday (13th) has a couple of free slots at 6pm and 7.30pm in Durham.  Thursday (16th) has slots from 9am to midday, and Saturday (18th) has free slots at 10.30am and 3.30pm.
Monday (20th) has a free slot at 7.30pm, and Saturday (25th) has slots from 3.30pm onwards.
These extra slots might provide an additional opportunity to grasp that difficult concept, or might simply form an extra revision opportunity during the holidays.  If you’re interested in any of them, let me know as soon as possible!
Working towards May and June
Finally, for those students with exams this year, I will be attempting to confirm your timetables all the way up until the exams in the next two weeks, so please have your calendars / diaries ready at your next session.
