YEAR 11s at Ashlawn have gained up to two-and-a-quarter extra GCSEs after an intensive skills course.

The course, provided by Coventry training firm Progressive Educational Tools (PET), involved creating and marketing a new sports brand as well as developing interview techniques and presentation skills.

Sharron Cranmer, the assistant head at Ashlawn School, said she was pleased to see the pupils’ efforts rewarded.

She said: “We have been really pleased with how the course has gone.

“The students have had a really good time and I know they feel like they have benefited and learned a lot of new skills that will aid them in the wider world.

“But what is most important is that they are rewarded with qualifications that will make a big difference to their lives.”
