English Language and English Literature

At KS3 level, our English Language and English Literature skills courses cater for Year 7 to 9 students looking to form effective reading, writing, speaking and listening capabilities that will provide them with a solid foundation for progression onto GCSE levels courses.

During the course, students will have the opportunity to review a range of age-appropriate reading materials, as well as the freedom to explore and develop preferred texts, whether that is reading more books by their favourite author or delving into the world of poetry.

KS4 students will receive further support to build on their base English skills developed at KS3 as they work towards positive outcomes at GCSE exam level. Much of our KS4 provision for English is centered on increasing students’ confidence and helping them reach personal goals as their knowledge and understanding of the subject grows.
