Topic Intent:

Students will draw upon a range of texts as reading stimulus and engage with creative as well as real and relevant contexts. Students will have opportunities to develop higher-order reading and critical thinking skills that encourage genuine enquiry into different topics and themes.

This specification will ensure that students can read fluently and write effectively. Students will be able to demonstrate a confident control of Standard English and write grammatically correct sentences, deploying figurative language and analysing texts.

Literature: The specification takes a skills-based approach to the study of English literature that is consistent across the genres. Our experienced team has produced question papers and mark schemes that allow you to get back to inspirational literature teaching and allow students of all abilities to achieve their best on every question.

It offers excellent preparation for AS and A-level English Literature, as well as giving students a grounding in a wide variety of literature that will stay with them for life. Our range of texts has been chosen to cater for the needs of teachers and students in all educational contexts. There are texts that will be familiar to you as well as new ones that will inspire young readers. A wide choice in each category means that there is something that will appeal to every teacher and every student.
