Paper 1 Question 5 can be a challenge, particularly as it is 25% of the entire GCSE. As such it is vital that students do well on this question. Reading short stories from across the years does help in teaching creative writing but these were not written with assessment objectives and skills descriptors in mind.
43 teachers came together to produce this anthology of stories written with this exam in mind.
The aim of this project was to help stretch and challenge learners by showing them what a good one looks like. It is hoped that by providing a set of exemplars specifically written for this qualification that learners will gain an insight in to the form of a great GCSE short story and how that may differ from their original expectations. This anthology provides students with a stimulus to improve their own responses, particularly in the context of the terminal examination.

A brilliant resource -- thank you to all the editors and contributors for putting this together and making it available for free.
What a wonderful resource, kudos to the original thought as well as to all those who contributed. In a time when many of my students are thoroughly confused by the specifications of their exams, this selection of stories highlights what can be accomplished when we are just taught to write well and exercise our imaginations.
