Edexcel Research – Developing the New International GCSEs

Private British School Aspire was chosen as one of the best Edexcel Centres to support the development of the new International GCSEs.

Louise Richardson (Head of Product Portfolio and Customised Solutions) together with Chris Boor (Commissioning Editor) visited Aspire, directly from the UK, and had a number of meetings with different teachers and management personnel discussing integration of wider skills, teamwork, communication and assessment across the curriculum. Teachers had the chance to provide their feedback and insight on the new textbooks and digital resources while in the development phase.

Edexcel will be supporting schools in these aspects. Making sure plans are appropriate and helpful a number of research meetings were established with a number of key International schools.

Aspire would like to thank Louise and Chris for their visit and for selecting our school as part of their International research program! We would also like to assure our parents, students and friends that we work hard, taking part into new developments, for achieving outstanding results!
