English Language and Literature at Prospect School
English ‘A’ Level is about response and communication, both oral and written. It is a demanding and rewarding course. The examinations require a very thorough knowledge and understanding of the set texts and test your ability to evaluate, analyse and criticise as well as apply knowledge about written and spoken English language.
The English Language and Literature course aims to combine the skills of reading, with creative use of writing and analysis of spoken and written English. Throughout the course, students will be encouraged to pursue their own interests in the English language, how it has changed over time and how it varies across the country. Students will be expected to engage in a wide range of literary and non-literary texts including novel study and an anthology.
