English – GCSE

Assessment is via two exam papers, which test reading and writing ability. There is NO coursework or controlled assessment element. Speaking and listening tasks will be completed and filmed, but will not count towards the final grade


This is a shortened course designed for those who do not yet hold a C grade in English or English Language. The main examinations are taken at the beginning of June. Please note that we offer only the English Language qualification. This enables students to experience and analyse a range of types of language, which will develop students' analytical and communicative skills.
