Year 10 and 11 pupils recently attended the Emmanuel Centre in London. The event was organised to give pupils access to information, geared to enhancing their understanding, of how to achieve the highest grades in their GCSE English exams.
There were four sessions, which included ‘Narrating and Describing’, ‘Reading Across the Centuries’, The Art of Persuasion’, and ‘Poetry by the Poet – Lemn Sissay’.
All that attended had a very full day which they evaluated as being interesting, informative and helpful. Many felt that they now knew how to produce a higher standard of answer as a result of what they’d been shown.
