Castle School in Taunton 'loses faith' in exam board


A Somerset head teacher has said she has "lost faith" in the exam board responsible for marking their English GCSE papers.

Pupils at the Castle School received far lower grades than predicted in their exams taken in January.

They are now planning to send some of the scripts to be remarked and a meeting has been called with other schools in the county to discuss the way forward.

Reporter Sabet Choudhury spoke to Sharon Watson and Julie Salter, head teacher and head of English respectively, at The Castle School.
