    A Level English Language and Literature


The Language and Literature course will comprise the reading and analysis of literary and non-fiction written and spoken texts. Students will study all three literary genres (drama, prose and poetry), and an anthology of historical and contemporary non-fiction and extended non-fiction. They will be expected to engage in written and spoken tasks designed to improve their ability to respond in a structured, logical and thoughtful manner and to become confident readers and producers of texts.
