    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.  

Entry Requirements

GCSE grade 5 in English or English Literature is required.

Curriculum Overview & Exam Information

We have included curriculum overviews as well as exam information to support students and parents/carers to have a better and broader understanding of how learning develops in each year group. The curriculum overview documents below indicate: the knowledge, skills and understanding that students will gain, how this unit builds on prior learning, and what mastery will look like for each year group. This year, we have added a catch up summary at the beginning to outline how we will catch up on lost learning during school closure. The red writing also indicates where the curriculum has been changed this academic year to support student catch up.
