This pack is amazing! Great texts, pitched at just the right level with some challenge for GCSE students in terms of concepts and vocabulary. The pairing of the texts from different time periods work really well. I also love the fact that the author has provided exam style questions for each exam board. I am a private tutor and this is so useful for preparing students for the GCSE English Language Paper 2, I use it all the time. Brilliant! And a massive thank you to the author!

This is a fantastic resource, super useful for helping students towards their GCSEs. Would you consider making one with unseen fiction in mind, such as in the OCR language GCSE?

Looks fabuous and effective for helping student sto read nonfiction. Will use it next school year with pleasure. Especially important is the concept of paired texts and the possibility of aligning these to fiction texts. DIANA AUBUCHON
