Principal of Bulwell Academy vows to 'all it can' to make sure students get best GCSE results possible
A CITY head teacher has pledged his academy is doing all it can to make sure students get the best possible English GCSE grades in the wake of last year's marking fiasco.
Paul Halcro, principal of Bulwell Academy, said staff had looked closely at their English curriculum to ensure students got the grades they needed.
His comments come after a High Court ruling on Wednesday that last year's English exams won't be regraded in spite of controversy over changes to grade boundaries.
Mr Halcro said: "There is no doubt that the GCSE English results had a negative impact on some of our students' results last year.
"Following these results, we have had a thorough review of our English curriculum to ensure that students are not affected by changes that could happen to the grade boundaries.
"Our English department is working hard to ensure that our students achieve the best they can in their GCSEs this year."
