English Language and Literature A level at King Edward VI Sixth Form College

Course description

Do you enjoy all aspects of English at GCSE? If so, this course could be the perfect choice, as it combines the best of Literature and Language.

You will study how language works and why writers make certain choices when writing descriptively. You will also have opportunities to develop character, written style and plot in your own writing through the popular creative writing coursework modules.

In the AS year you will study a poetry anthology of around 30 poems, representing a range of poetry from Chaucer to the present day. You will also study two modern novels and develop two pieces of creative writing. During the A2 year you will study additional texts and produce more of your own creative writing such as a script or screenplay.

Throughout the course you will experience a range of learning methods and styles including discussion, reading, note making, group work, watching films of texts and drafting coursework and exam essays.
