Mayberry High School
Friday, 2nd January, 2015.Dear Mrs Proctor,
I am writing to you in the capacity of a year
eleven pupil, near the closure of her high school career, who is concerned about the variety of GCSE subjects you offer.
As you will be aware, the Year 11’s are now in the process of submitting their A-Level applications and I am concerned that the school is not doing all it can to produce individual and rounded students.During interviews with some colleges I have been told that my
application lacked uniqueness which is what they look for to help
them separate out the thousands of applications they receive. I feel that if you were to offer a wider selection of GCSE subjects, college applications would stand out more.
