(Exam Board: AQA)
At KS5, we have two routes of study available – English Language and English Literature. Where possible, the curriculum at KS4 is designed to support the transition into A Level with skills being developed to ensure that they are ‘A Level ready’ – especially with the more able students.
English Literature – A Level
A Street Car Named Desire – Tennessee Williams
Othello – William Shakespeare
Feminine Gospels – Carol Ann Duffy
The Picture of Dorian Grey – Oscar Wilde
The Great Gatsby – F Scott Fitzgerald
The Handmaid’s Tale – Margaret Atwood
To be confirmed
There will be opportunities for groups of students to visit libraries, theatres, etc. throughout the year depending on availability.
