The explanation is good, I would recommend mentioning the type of volcano that is produced and why.
As the magma at this particular destructive boundary is from melted oceanic plate, it has a high silica content, and is therefore very viscous.
I would mention that, as the magma breaks through the surface it erupts as viscous lava. This flows a short distance before cooling to form a steep sided volcano (stratovolcano or composite cone volcano) made up of alternating layers of ash and cooled lava.

Of course, sorry i was unaware of the amount of marks. I've just included that because I had a similar question about volcanoes and wrote a similar answer. However, my teacher didn't award full marks as I didn't mention the volcano type
