West Sussex head teachers have given a mixed reaction to plans to reform the GCSE exam.

Proposals to replace the qualification with the English Baccalaureate were announced last month by Education Secretary, Michael Gove. Key to the reforms is abolishing modular courses and controlled assessment, instead having a single exam at the end of the course.

Della West, head teacher of Davison High School in Worthing, said the reforms were a “retrograde step”.
