English

During their English lessons, students will study an ambitious curriculum, exploring texts from across the Literary Canon. Each year group will visit key historical eras and subsequent literature to establish a foundation for their appreciation of texts. This knowledge-rich curriculum will provide students with the ability to confidently and independently analyse texts. Students will also have the opportunity to produce their own pieces of writing for a range of audiences and purposes.

What is included in the course:

AQA GCSE English Literature:

Students will study the following set texts:

A Shakespeare play- either Romeo and Juliet or Macbeth 

A Christmas Carol

An Inspector Calls

AQA Power and Conflict Poetry

 

AQA GCSE English Language:

How Will I Be Assessed?

Students will be assessed regularly during their English lessons, providing them with opportunities to complete exam-style assessments. They will also complete examination responses for the whole school mock examinations.

 

Progression/ Career Opportunities

The programme of study is excellent preparation for further and higher educations courses including A Level English Language and A Level English Literature.
