A Level English Literature is a fascinating course, designed to engage the heart and soul, as well as the mind. The texts we study span over five centuries and three continents, and will present you with a variety of mature ideas and perspectives on life, emanating from stories of passion and drama. The course offers students the opportunity to explore a range of texts and literary criticisms expanding and developing knowledge gained at GCSE. Lessons will involve a variety of learning strategies including group investigations, teacher and student-led presentations, close analysis and discussions and video interpretations of some texts. Obviously the key element of the course is reading: we assume that all students are keen readers of fiction who will want to read and write about more than just the set texts. The course is divided into three units: two exams and the coursework component.
Across KS3 students are introduced to a wide range of challenging reading material and are also encouraged to develop their individual writing skills with a focus on real audiences and purposes. Schemes of Learning follow National Curriculum guidelines and aim to offer students a diverse, enriching and inspiring experience in English. Students will also be given the opportunity to participate in a range of Spoken Language activities which will enable them to develop skills applicable to life both within and outside of school.
Payment Plan Option Spread the cost over 4 monthly payments. Students will read extensively and critically so that they are able to discuss and explain their understanding and ideas fluently, and make connections across their reading. This specification is designed to show the depth and power of the English literary heritage and students will need to write accurately, effectively and analytically about their reading, using Standard English and will acquire and use a wide vocabulary, including the grammatical terminology and other literary and linguistic terms they need to criticise and analyse what they read. Each lesson begins with a set of clearly stated objectives and an explanation of its place in the overall programme of study.
