I awoke with great anticipation on Sunday morning. I was out of bed and had the coffee made in plenty of time. Just after 8.30am I sat down to watch Andy Murray in the Australian Open final. He had had a very promising two weeks and looked back to his form of a year or two ago.
In my first few weeks at Truro High School I have been reflecting on public examinations and their place within our education system. As we have celebrated the successes of our young women in GCSEs and A Levels over recent weeks there has been much media coverage, almost exclusively positive, of the halt to grade inflation.
