Details

This example explains how a large, ethnically mixed comprehensive school achieves excellent examination results in politics and sends a very high percentage of students to study politics at university.

It focuses on the high expectations of the teachers; the tracking of progress and a range of intervention strategies; the innovative subject enrichment programme; and the strategic use of ‘assessment for learning’ techniques.
