Investigations by both the Edexcel exam board and the school found the complaint was justified and the teacher was suspended pending a disciplinary hearing

A teacher working for one of the Government’s favourite academy chains re-wrote the coursework of all her 69 pupils for a unit of the BTec science exam last summer in a bid to improve their grades.

The incident involving the  teacher at the Falconwood Academy in Bexley, south London – part of the Harris Academy Federation – came to light when a whistleblower at the school complained to the exam board, Edexcel.
