Our schemes for the new GCSEs have been developed by experienced English teachers who have been closely guided by the new specs and are aware of the need for progress and differentiation. These schemes have been reviewed and edited after feedback from external moderatorsto ensure that they deliver exactly you require. A lesson-by-lesson focus on assessment objectives ensures that there are close links to the AOs throughout the scheme and skills based learning objectives mean that progress can be shown. The schemes include a wide range of activities to increase engagement and attainment and ensure that all learners are catered for.

Thorough preparation of your students for the new linear GCSE exams is essential. Our Assessment Packs include trial papers, mark schemes and support notes. These resources have been developed by experienced English assessors with extensive awarding body experience and by people who were very closely involved in the development of these new specifications. Our materials have been thoroughly reviewed and edited after feedback from independent scrutineers to ensure they are both authentic and accurate.

Our Teacher Guides with graduated examples on Understanding Context, Developing a Personal View and How o Compare and Contrast have been written and moderated by examiners and contain a series of examiner tips. A Glossary of Frequently Used Terms in GCSE has also been published.
