A' level English Literature at Bishop Young Church of England Academy

Course description

This specification has a distinct philosophy which centres on different ways of reading and the connections that exist between texts within a literary genre. Students gain a solid understanding of how texts can be connected and how they can be interpreted in multiple ways so that students can arrive at their own interpretations and become confident autonomous readers. Students are equipped with the knowledge and skills needed for exams, but also experience a rich, challenging and coherent approach to English literature that provides an excellent basis for further study in the subject. The specification encourages the exploration of texts in a number of different ways: -the study of literature within a specific genre -the study of various texts, chosen from a set text list -writing about texts in a number of different ways.

Ideally, students wishing to study A-Level English Literature would have already attained a grade 5 or above in both GCSE English Language and GCSE English Literature.
