English Literature A Level at St Peter's Catholic Comprehensive School

Course description

The study of Literature allows students to explore character, plot, theme and style across a range of genres and over a broad time scale, covering texts written in historical settings ranging from Middle English through Shakespeare, the Romantics and Victorians, right up to the present day. The course allows for a variety of student activity, including discussion, note-taking, personal research and coursework, as well as the traditional end-of-unit or end-of-year examination. The A2 part of the syllabus also allows a degree of personal freedom in the selection of the texts studied. Film and theatre visits contribute to the learning process.

Entry requirements

The minimum requirements for entry on to the course are Grade B in BOTH GCSE English AND Literature. We would also expect you to have an inbuilt love for reading and a desire and willingness to spend time on your texts.
