English Language and Literature A-Level at Coppice Performing Arts School
Designed with a focus on the integration of language and literature, this course enables students to see how linguistic and literary methods are related and to explore these links in their work.
Offering clear skills progression from GCSE, these courses allow students to build on the skills and knowledge already gained and prepare for their next steps.
The variety of assessment styles used, such as re-creative writing, commentary writing, discursive essays and research-based investigative writing, allows students to develop a wide range of skills. These include the ability to read critically, analyse, evaluate and undertake independent research, which are invaluable for both further study and future employment.
The minimum entry requirement for Level 3 study is 5 GCSEs A*-C including English and Mathematics; these should be in at least 4 different subjects. You will receive guidance about which pathway will be most suited to your needs which will be based on your anticipated GCSE Point Score.

However, these options will be discussed in your admission interview.
