GCSE Pod

Click here to see the guide on how to support your child with GCSE Pod.

The school currently subscribes to a service called GCSEPod which we believe will be of great benefit to our students.

GCSEPod has over 3,500 teacher-written, audio-visual podcasts produced specifically for mobile devices and containing all the right facts, quotes, keywords, dates and annotated diagrams that learners need for GCSE success. The GCSEPod website can be viewed on mobiles, tablets and PCs and the podcasts can be downloaded for offline playback. The podcasts are mapped to the curriculum and designed to support students in the classroom, with their homework, and exams.

We recommend parents discuss GCSEPod with your daughter, ensure that they have the correct login details, and encourage them to make use of this service. 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.
All our students have already been registered with GCSEPod and so simply need to:
1) visit www.gcsepod.com
2) Click the ‘New Here? Get started’ button

When students first visit the site, they will be asked a few setup questions such as what subjects they study. They will also be asked to choose a username and password.

Once logged in, students can search for podcasts by keyword, by a specific exam or by subject area. Students can create their own personalised learning playlists which can be easily downloaded for offline use. Help guides explaining how to use the site are available in the “Help” section in the top navigation bar

If you have any questions regarding the GCSEPod service at BPAC, please contact Mr Fuller - sfuller@barnwood-park.gloucs.sch.uk.
