Improving English outcomes across Walsall 

Having great English teachers does not always correlate to pupils achieving great outcomes. That’s our starting point for the Key Stage 4 English project that Matrix have been asked by the Department for Education to deliver across Walsall (a Priority Education Investment Area). We are bringing together Walsall English practitioners to improve GCSE outcomes in 2024, 2025 and sustain these improvements into the future.
