Creative Writing at The Hermitage Academy

Course description

Creative Writing is a course that will give you the opportunity to study writing as an art form in its own right. Just as aspiring actors, musicians and artists can trace a route through school and beyond, it allows aspiring writers to practise and develop skills to gain a strong foundation for many professions within the creative industries. It also allows students who have enjoyed creative writing at GCSE to progress without necessarily intending to study the subject at degree level.

This qualification complements English Language or Literature (and so it can be studied alongside each of these A Levels) and would complement other aesthetic courses such as those in Media/Film but also offer students who are studying sciences, languages and humanities, the opportunity to demonstrate their creative side and profile their breadth of skills at post-16. The Creative Writing course is accessible to students who are not necessarily interested in language theory or literary criticism.

The course is a variety of exam and coursework modules; students will read and produce many different forms of creative and professional writing such as prose fiction, radio and television scripts, digital articles, print-based journalism
