Creative Writing AS/A2 at Stanborough School
This new course provides a thorough grounding and understanding of creativity within English and will provide an excellent basis for further study or entry into a range of professions. This course provides opportunities to discuss literature within historical, social and cultural contexts. It develops an understanding of the approaches and methods needed to analyse literary texts and also extend students’ own writing skills.
You will need a genuine interest in literature, secure writing skills, an open mind and a willingness to enter into debate and discussion. You will also study critical approaches to literature and produce two pieces of coursework on a choice of texts which will demonstrate independent reading. A passion for reading is essential when undertaking this course. AQA had this to say about the introduction of such a new and exciting course: ‘In our market research the response from the Higher Education sector was extremely positive. Our application to Ofqual was supported by well over 20 universities, including some Russell Group and 1994 group institutions. The course has been developed with practising writers and creative writing experts from Higher Education, and we are confident that it will be welcomed by many universities. Entrance requirements will vary and students are always advised to check with their preferred institutions.’
