Key Stage 3

The English course at KS3 (Years 7 and 8) equips students with the skills required at GCSE level. Reading and writing skills are explored here to make students increasingly analytical and creative. In Year 7 students will read a range of modern and contemporary fiction, as well as pre & post 1914 poetry and ‘unseen poetry’. Literacy skills are a focus point, forming the basis of a number of different writing styles and genres.

 

Key Stage 4

In KS4 students follow the Eduqas English Language and Eduqas English Literature specifications. In English Language, students are required to answer questions on 19th, 20th and 21st century fiction texts. The writing tasks focus on narrative writing and transactional writing. For English Literature, students study: ‘Macbeth’, ‘A Christmas Carol’, ‘An Inspector Calls’, Unseen Poetry and the Eduqas Poetry Anthology.
