English Literature A-Level at Chase High School
All you really need is a willingness to read and think about a wide range of literature and critical materials, but along the way we’ll expect you to develop other skills too: the close analysis of literary texts, theorising and criticising theory, judging works, evaluating opinions and ideas, and formulating original opinions of your own.
In this two-year course, you will study the following:
- Unit 1 – Aspects of narrative
- Unit 2 – Dramatic genres
- Unit 3 – Texts and genres
- Unit 4 – Independent reading
The course will help you to develop your written and spoken communication skills, as well as your ability to think rigorously, interrogate texts for meaning and support your views with evidence.
5 x GCSEs at Grades A*-C, including English and Maths or an equivalent Level 2 BTEC, with GCSE English and Maths
An AS or A Level in English Literature is a widely recognised and well-respected qualification, welcomed by employers and universities alike, as they appreciate that anyone who has passed the subject has good communication and analytical skills. You may choose, as many do, to go on to study at university. With A Level English Literature under your belt you could continue the subject at degree level or opt for a related subject such as history, law, film studies or journalism.
