Addressing the gender gap with GCSEPod
Gwernyfed High School, Wales
Gwernyfed High School is a small rural school in Wales. Just like many schools across the UK, girls’ attainment at Gwenyfed outstrips that of boys, but the school has now made addressing the gender gap a key priority. Steve Williams, Deputy Headteacher explains how GCSEPod has proved an effective tool in narrowing the gender gap and engaging boys at the school.
"We've seen boys who have been particularly difficult to engage with downloading a large volume of Pods - not only on the instructions of their teachers but totally independently too. Their aspirations have been raised and they are responding well.”
