11+, SATs, GCSE & ISEB Resource Group

The 11+, SATs, GCSE & ISEB Resource Group is a Facebook group that serves as a platform for parents, teachers and tutors to come together to discuss study resources, offer advice, share their experiences of exams and support and encourage one another. The team of admins, made up of educational professionals (including Brooke and Lucy), contribute helpful, daily content such as Facebook live videos and English and maths tips. The founder of the group, Agness O’Brien, was kind enough to sit down with us and answer some questions about this unique, useful and ever-growing group.
