Yes, they do, though sometimes I let them use word processors, especially in
the older classes (I teach kids from age 11 right up to age 18+) As they
will have to do at least three two-hour written exams for their GCSEs, it's
important to keep the skill going. As it is they find it tiring to write for
so long - imagine if they never wrote with pens on paper at all before the
exams!
