What is GCSE Pod?

GCSE Pod is an online learning platform containing over 6000 podcasts ('pods') to help you with your learning, homework and revision.

Each 'pod' is designed to squeeze exactly the right knowledge needed for exam success into short 3 to 5 minute chunks.

The pods accessible to you are directly linked to the courses / exam boards used by Withernsea High School - meaning you will always learn relevant content.

Please scroll down for instructions on how to log in and register your account, plus a useful video on how to use GCSE Pod.

If you need help signing up / logging in, or you need help with using the site, please contact: Mrs Mackenzie ( ) or Dr Finer ( ).
