English Language - A Level at Northallerton College

Course description

Throughout the course of study students will be taught to use linguistic methods to analyse and investigate a variety of textual extracts taken from everyday sources.

Entry requirements

Students will be expected to have achieved at least a grade 6 in GCSE English or have demonstrated an aptitude for the subject.


A variety of teaching and learning styles are used, including individual research with feedback, small group and paired work, discussion and regular timed practice. We believe it is very important for students to receive advice on a one-t├Žone basis, especially during coursework units. Students are strongly encouraged to read widely and explore a wide variety of texts.
