The English Department has steadily improved student achievement over the last few years, and this year has seen further significant changes to the Department’s structure as we look to continue to raise standards in line with the high expectations of the school. The restructuring also reflects the need to prepare for the changes in GCSE and A Level syllabuses that will come into force in 2015, while at the same time ensuring that delivery of the current courses is improved.
All students now take both English Language and English Literature through to GCSE and from September 2014 we are offering an exciting new Lit./Lang. combined A Level course.
In addition there is the option to take Media Studies at GCSE and A level and Film Studies at A Level.
