English Literature at William De Ferrers School

Course description

During the two year course students will study a mixture of genre (drama, poetry amd prose) and study will focus on analysiing the ways in which language, form and structure shape meaning in texts, making a judgement informed by interpretations of other readers and they will also study the contexts in which the texts were written and received so that the can determine their significance and influence. Students will learn how to construct a line of argument and how to express themselves fluently when writing.

Most lessons are spent in discussion for which students are expected to prepare. Some texts will be read in class, but students will be required to undertake some wider reading at home too, especially in preparation fo the AS course.

Entry requirements
