Creative Writing at James Calvert Spence College

Course description

This is a relatively new A Level course which students can access alongside other English courses or as a stand-alone qualification. This gives students an opportunity to study creative writing, without their writing being in response to set texts, questions or tasks. Students will be required to produce a portfolio of their own writing and will also sit an examination, where their ability to write to deadlines will be assessed.

This course not only has direct links to skills required in higher education, but also links to careers, such as journalism, publishing and even writing as a profession. Alongside creativity, students will develop their technical accuracy and look at different ways of expressing themselves through the medium of writing. A keen interest in reading is essential for this course.

Entry requirements

Five GCSE subject passes grade A* - C to include either English or maths.
