KS4

At Key Stage 4 the students further develop the knowledge and skills they acquired at Key Stage 3, focusing once again on our intention to provide our students with the skills and knowledge to think about the different ways in which writers have explored what it means to be human. They continue to study an extensive range of fiction and non-fiction texts. Students explore texts from both the literary canon and a wide range of non-fiction texts as they track and enjoy the progress and development of literature throughout the ages to the modern day. Students are provided with opportunities to develop their analytical and evaluative skills. They are encouraged to express their thoughts and develop a personal response to the work. Students explore and develop their writing skills in interesting and engaging imaginative and transactional writing activities. Students are also provided with opportunities to develop their formal speaking skills through the Spoken Language element of the English Language GCSE. At the end of year 11, students take two GCSEs: one in English Language and the other in English Literature.
