English Literature A Level at St Michael's Catholic Grammar School

Course description

English Literature is one of the most popular subjects in the school. This is because of the enduring appeal of studying a variety of texts and authors within a school that has a strong tradition of literary pursuits. At A Level students follow the AQA: Specification B, studying a range of poetry and prose texts. T

he students are invited to suitable theatre visits, films and lectures, and numerous courses off-site, as well as attending extra tutorials within the department. Specialised mock interviews are held in preparation for University entrance and our top students are coached for the Oxford ELAT (English Literature Admission Test.)

Students are encouraged to participate in the Senior Book club and receive extension reading lists, which take them beyond the remit of their A Level course. We pride ourselves on sharing the expertise of students within the school- and we have a very successful mentoring system, linking A-Level English students with pupils in key stage 3 and key stage 4 in order to enhance their reading and writing skills.
