Last week, Shevington High School hosted a training event for 9 Wigan Schools who are all embarking on the new AQA GCSE in English. This was a very well attended session and English teachers from across Wigan worked hard, well into the evening. By the end of the training, we had gained a fresh insight into how the new GCSEs will be marked. At Shevington, this is crucial information as the Year 10 exams start in just a few weeks. We look forward to seeing how our pupils do compared to the examples from pilot schools that we saw last week.
