English Language A level at Enfield County School

Course description

The course is suitable for those students who wish to develop their knowledge about language.  There will be the opportunity to study both modern texts, including media texts, and texts from the past. Students will need to be prepared to study concepts and frameworks for the study of language and to develop their skills in speaking, analysing and writing for different purposes and audiences.

Course content

Students will study a wide range of spoken, written and multimodal texts.  As observers, readers and writers, students will be inspired by learning about spoken and written language from real and imagined worlds.  They will study the development of language through time as well as Child language and the coursework will allow them to research a language topic of their choice.

Entry requirements

Those students who have studied GCSE English Language and Literature will find that the skills they have learned will prove a valuable foundation for further studies at this level.  We require GCSE grade C or above in English Language and English Literature.


The course is assessed through examinations and coursework.

Future opportunities
