Congratulations to all my students on their excellent  English GCSE and A level results.

Some intensive last minute revision has helped significantly in a number of cases, with the final grades much better than those predicted by the schools after the mocks.  Overall, pleased to have helped so many students get the grades they need for the next stage of their lives!

I am absolutely delighted for all of them! Continue reading “Great results at GCSE and A level”
