On Friday 1 July, the English Departments from Abbot’s Hill School and Adeyfield School came together for a joint English training day. An English examinations developer from AQA spent the day at Abbot’s Hill school assisting 12 teachers in meeting the challenges of the new GCSE Language and Literature course.
The day was fascinating and really helped teachers in both departments share ideas about maximising potential, and curriculum planning and assessment. The day proved to be highly beneficial and the enthusiasm and knowledge of the trainer and the re-useable resources were the most useful aspects of the day.
