English Literature at St Edward's College
English Literature has always been a well established A Level, respected by universities and employers alike. It continues to be a very popular choice for Upper School.
The course marks a real progression and is very different to GCSE English Literature. It involves the study of both the old and modern texts written in the English language. It involves close and analytical reading of texts and the contexts in which they were written.
You will develop the ability to analyse texts using critical theory. You will learn to make your own critical judgements about texts and to evaluate judgements made by others.
B grade in GCSE English
The exact choice of text changes from year to year. The texts are selected by the staff teaching each specific class.
