On the 20th April, the English Curriculum Area took 20 pupils to Glan-llyn Activity Centre in Bala, North Wales. It was an intensive revision weekend where pupils had the opportunity to spend over ten hours revising Anthology Poetry, 'An Inspector Calls', 'A Christmas Carol', Unseen Poetry and the components of the Language exams.
It wasn't all hard work, however, pupils enjoyed a brisk walk in the sunny Welsh countryside and made use of the on-site bowling and sports facilities. By Sunday, pupils had covered a large majority of their GCSE topics and were given one-to-one feedback with experienced English staff regarding their targets for the weeks leading to the exams.
Pupils had a great time and relished the chance to revise in such a scenic and memorable setting.
