Service Description

Phase 1: GCSE Creative Writing 1 SOW: Graham Strugnell Summer 2024 The course will introduce students to questions and techniques from across the range of the major exam boards. I will provide tips and model answers when necessary to help students grasp correct methods that will bring good results at GCSE.
