English at Goffs School

Course description

The course is designed to give a study of English Literature to considerable depth through close teacher guidance.  Modern texts and great canons of literature are studied in more detail than degree level studies offer, providing excellent opportunity for candidates to fully understand literary techniques, writing styles, methods of analysis and cultural, historical and social issues.  By nature, Literature covers almost every subject under the sun and would suit any candidate with an interest in language, social interaction, communication or writing.  It will help pupils to develop critical and analytical skills which can be applied to all other subjects.  Pupils should be confident in essay writing and willing to read both examined texts and additional material independently.

Future opportunities

A qualification in English Literature can present opportunities in virtually any career, depending on other A Level options.  Obvious English based careers include Law, Education, Theatre and Media but any career will welcome the breadth of education which an English A Level adds to other subjects. 


The course is useful for the study of any ‘English’ based course at university as well as Law, History, Theatre Studies, Media etc.

It is also useful as a 3rd/4th subject when studying in other areas to lend breadth to study.
