English Language & Literature

This is a most enjoyable course which enables students who enjoy both the linguistic and literary aspects of English study, to continue to develop their interests. Students will study a number of great literary texts, and through this develop their skills in language analysis.

Why English Language & Literature?

It provides a course of study for those who do not yet wish to specialise in the study of either language or literature and allows them to maintain their broad interest. English is useful for innumerable careers and the foundation of academic study. 

Any special requirements?  

Students must enjoy reading and be prepared to study alone, bridging their ideas and opinions to class study. They should have achieved at least a grade B/5 in both GCSE English Language and English Literature.

What will I study and how will I be assessed? 

Coursework - 'Making Connections' - exploring a theme in both literary and non-literary texts (20%)
Paper 1 - 'Telling Stories' - 3 questions, 2 based on texts already studied, one unseen (40%)
Paper 2 - 'Exploring Conflict' - 3 questions based on texts already studied - (40%)
