Whether you’re new to Northbrook or have been here for a few years already, welcome to the 2013/14 academic year! I’m Jay Snelling, one of the Maths and English Functional Skills and GCSE tutors and I’m really looking forward to meeting you next week.
This blog is specifically for those students studying GCSE English with me. I will post items of interest, homework and links to important texts, websites and videos here.
As well as improving our English skills in general, we will be studying William Golding’s Lord of The Flies this year! I’m very excited about this – it’s one of my favourite books and I hope you’ll enjoy it too.
