English Literature – A Level

You will study an interesting and challenging range of texts across a variety of genres, developing your skills as a critical and evaluative reader.

The two genres that we will be focusing on for examination study are elements of crime writing and elements of tragedy.

Over the two year linear course, you will study at least 8 texts which will develop your skills as an independent learner.

There is a coursework component, where you are able to explore your own literary interests, which counts as 20% of your final grade.  This is an ideal course for anyone who enjoys reading and analysing a wide range of literature and discussing their thoughts about texts.
