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.
AQA GCSE English Literature:
Students will study the following set texts:
A Shakespeare play- either Romeo and Juliet or Macbeth
A Christmas Carol

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