Students will be entered for both GCSE English language and English literature. Both GCSEs are 100% examinations with all examinations taking place in summer 2022.

Students will develop skills of analysis through reading a range of different text types from the 16th century to the present day. Students will also develop writing skills across a range of text types for different purposes and audiences ensuring that they use punctuation, spelling and grammar accurately. For the English literature qualification, students will study: a Shakespeare play, a nineteenth-century novel, a poetry anthology and a modern drama or prose text. Finally, students will develop the skills of speaking and listening in a range of contexts and roles. Whilst speaking and listening does not form part of the GCSE grade qualification, these skills will be accredited on students’ certificates.

In an ever-changing world, English remains the international language of communication. The GCSE English courses develop the skills needed for effective and fruitful participation in a global society.
