English Literature at The Thomas Hardye School
You will read a wide range of English Literature texts, studying poetry, prose and plays. At least five texts will be studied in detail including literary criticism. The texts will range from those written in 1800 to the present day, with at least one text first published after 1990. The course will build on the skills of reading, understanding and response developed at GCSE and will augment your ability to construct and convey meaning both orally and in writing.
The course will enable you to respond to texts of different types and periods. You will look at form, structure and language and the contexts in which literary works are written and understood. You will discuss your own and other readers’ interpretations of the texts. Your ability to produce informed and independent opinions and judgements will be developed together with your ability to communicate clearly.
5 A* - C at GCSE and B in English
