English Language, AQA at Penistone Grammar Advanced Learning Centre
Why do we use the words ‘princess’ and ‘madam’ to describe someone who is being a nuisance, when the words ‘prince’ and ‘sir’ have only positive connotations?
Can you explain the grammar of text messaging? Do you ever read the back of shampoo bottles and wonder who picked those words and why?
To secure a place at our Post 16 Centre five passes or more GCSE passes at grade C or above and a minimum of a C grade in both English Language and Mathematics. All students will also need a B Grade GCSE in any subject they are wanting to study at A Level. If it is a new subject for example Sociology or Psychology students must have achieved a grade B in both Mathematics and English Language.
You could take this course to complement other advanced level courses or to prepare for the A2 part of an Advanced GCE in English Language, which could lead onto higher education in English Language or more general higher education courses. With further training, you could go into a job related to English Language such as a Teacher, Journalist, or Editor.
