I am working closely with year 10, of which is a very talented year. i was taken back at how talented several of the students are. i was very suprosed to hear that many of the students hate English lit, yet are extreamily good at reading and understanding Shakespeare. I think this class are very lucky to have Pete workibg with them as he really takes time with this particualr group, he is even trying to get several students into the Brits school.
