The ability to analyze and collaborate with people from all walks of life and to effectively communicate within that environment will give students the foundation to move into any career direction they desire.

All our courses are created to foster these skills and to equip students for their future in English Language and Literature studies. Focusing on these skillsets we explore many topics and content and themes to empower our students to engage and challenge their perceived boundaries.

Years 7 & 8

During years 7 and 8, we develop the student’s skills for the English language through the study of a novel and various pieces of poetry. Students will enjoy the English language through creative writing and experience the linguistic skills of Shakespeare in the seventh year. When they progress to eighth-year studies, students will further explore Shakespeare as well as War Poetry and the very popular genre of dystopian literature.

Year 9 – Transition Year

Year 9 is designed to be the stepping stone between the start of Key Stage 3 and the higher levels of GCSE.

Years 10 & 11

As a compulsory course, English Language and Literature are evaluated entirely by examinations that culminate in the final exam at the end of year 11. As a skills-based course, students have to focus on the application of their skills in reading and writing during the exams, which will be based on 3 separate literary texts and a selection of poetry.

Sixth Form

English language studies are very popular amongst students for A-Levels, as it is very desirable for career preparation when it comes to further studies in Law, History, Political studies as well as Advertising and Marketing and Journalism.

English Language A-Level (AQA):

Students will specifically explore the great tragedies of the English language like Othello and Death of a Salesman.
