    Can anyone confirm how they are using GCSE English? Is it an outlet for weaker students who would, perhaps, struggle with English Language and Literature?

  2. Our lower ability students take the English only route (about 20% of year group). They wouldn't necessarily struggle with Lit any more than they do with Lang, but this approach means more time can be devoted to core English skills. We currently only have 3 periods of English a week, and the decision was taken that a grade C in English was probably more valuable than a D in Lang and Lit.
