“I am more confident in what I write and say. She lets us work at our own levels instead of making everybody work on the same level.”   Shaminah, Year 9.

I enjoyed it when we had discussions and when we do fun activities to help us learn. I can now put pen to paper without worrying if my work will be good.”  Amy, Year 9.

“She teaches with emotion which draws her pupils in. We can see that she loves what she does.” Angela, Year 11

“I have thoroughly enjoyed the course, not only because it has taught me so many things I would not have gained out of Literature alone, but because I enjoy your teaching and your lessons where I always feel engaged and interested.

I know I’m definitely not the most academic of pupils, but I’ve wanted to be a journalist for about 4 years now, writing about current issues and/or features and interviews because I think I have something to say. I know that people are always going to tell me that I’m not good enough or not smart enough but I’ve come to the realisation now that I don’t care what people say / think because it’s what I want to do with my life and that’s all there is to it. So all the times you’ve praised us in class really helped!” Philippa, Year 13.
