When studying English Language, students will consolidate and build on the literacy skills they will need in the wider world by developing their functional, persuasive, narrative and descriptive writing expertise. In addition students will examine a wide range of non-fiction and fiction texts in order to progress their analysis skills.
What can I do afterwards?
The skills developed while studying English can open the door to an incredible variety of careers and courses, with many further education courses and jobs now requiring a GC SE qualification in this subject. Students can choose to study English at A Level and then as a degree subject or to enable you to enter professions such as a law, journalism, teaching, social work, engineering and the armed forces.
Each of our Year 7 & 8 will receive a FREE book! During the next two weeks students will pick their book from 17 titles. Take a look at this year's choice on the Bookbuzz website.
