Description

Exam time is fast approaching at Lilian Baylis Technology School, meaning extra effort to make sure students achieve good GCSE grades, as headteacher Gary Philips pushes for results.

Deputy headteacher Su Wardrop rounds up group of Year 11 students who are in danger of slipping below grade C in English and maths in this year's GCSE exams.

Some students and their parents are frustrated that extra English lessons mean missing out on other subjects, and head of English, Iain Sankey, faces difficult questions at parents evening.

Gary, however, stands by his belief that English and maths are crucial for college entry.
