Students of mine who sat the November English Language GCSE resit received their results this week and there was some great news for many of them.
The highest praise has to go to Anoushka who transformed a grade 5 into a quite remarkable 8, an achievement which is going to have a significant impact on her future path in education as well as her employment prospects. Employers looking at her grades will see evidence not only of a high level of competence in critical reading and a range of writing skills, but also the tenacity and determination that underpin success in a whole variety of challenges that are encountered in the work place.
I am so delighted for all of those students whose efforts have been rewarded. It makes everything so worthwhile.
