English at University Academy Holbeach

Course description

English Literature is both rewarding and challenging and is ideal if you love reading, find close analysis thought-provoking and want to explore the impact of context on writer's choices. Over the two years of the course, you will study texts dating from at least as far back as the early 17th Century to the present, and covering: poetry, drama (including Shakespeare) and prose. English Literature is a subject that stimulates both the intellect and the imagination and this course is suitable for students who want to study either modern or traditional courses at university.

Students will work together in groups to explore texts through discussion sessions, so it important that students feel confident enough to express their opinions about the texts being studied. Students will be expected to read widely, independently and critically; to work with others on research and presentation projects; to manage their time effectively and prepare texts for lessons. There will be opportunities for students to attend a variety of trips, study days and theatre visits.

Entry requirements

A minimum of 5 GCSE's at Grade C or above, with at least a Grade B in English Language/Literature.
