Praise for GCSE English work

Praise for GCSE English work


The exam board, AQA, has given high praise to Tupton Hall students' controlled assessment work in GCSE English, GCSE English Language and GCSE English Literature this year.

Here is what they said:

GCSE English Language

"This sample was a pleasure to moderate. Of particular note was the excellent task setting for Extended Reading which supported students in receiving deservedly high marks."

"The writing tasks were engaging and well crafted. The use of small amount of specific data enabled candidates to write well in the Spoken Language Study. An impressive set of work."

GCSE English Literature

"Candidates had been very well prepared and thoughtfully addressed all the assessment criteria. A pleasure to moderate."

Head of English Mrs Caroline Spalding said: "Year 11 students should be congratulated on their hard work throughout the GCSE course." 

"All of the marks given by teachers at the school were upheld by the exam board."
