Outstanding Success in the English Speaking Board Examinations

Outstanding Success in the English Speaking Board Examinations

Spoken English is a cornerstone of a Moreton Hall education and students have achieved consistently high scores across the ESB Examinations board for another year running! 

Further to last term's impressive results from Remove to Lower 5 - where fifty eight students received distinctions - sixty students from Upper 5 and Lower Sixth took on the examination, with great success. 

Lower Sixth students in the ESB Advanced Certificate in Spoken English, presented talks on a subject of their choice, delivered a reading and led a discussion on a current issue. Congratulations to the twenty eight students who were awarded distinctions – the equivalent to an A* at A Level – and to the eighteen girls who were awarded merit plus – the equivalent to an A at A Level. 

Eight Upper 5 entrants gave presentations for the Advanced Senior Proficiency with five students being awarded a distinction and three a merit plus - a strong performance all round. 

Both of these grades qualify for UCAS Tariff Points and so every student that has entered will benefit greatly. Head of Spoken English, Merriel Halsall-Williams, remarks: “Yet again, another set of excellent results. The girls have prepared well and always work hard to achieve these results. I'm delighted with their deserved successes.”
