Curriculam Button Two

Key Stage 4

At GCSE we follow the AQA course in Language and Literature. Both courses are now well established in the Department. Our results are excellent at GCSE:  89% achieved 5-9 in English Language (48% 7-9) and 90% achieved 5-9 in English Literature (55% 7-9).  

In Year 10, for Literature, students study Lord of the Flies, the AQA Power & Conflict Poetry Anthology. For Language they will study both Paper 1 (Analysis of Fiction and Creative Writing) and Paper 2 (Reading Non-Fiction and Argument writing).  

In Year 11, girls study Pride and Prejudice and Macbeth for literature as well as continuing to work on Language skills and revising both Papers.
