English Language and Literature A Level Block A at Homewood School and Sixth Form Centre

Course description

We will be offering both the AS and the A Level versions of the course which involve the study of linguistics and English literature. Students will learn how to analyse a range of English language texts; they will produce their own creative and evaluative writing in response to set briefs. The one-year AS course is comprised of five elements, assessed over two written examinations: 1. Imagined Worlds 2. Poetic Voices 3. Remembered Places 4. Re-creative Writing 5. Critical Commentary. The two-year A Level course is comprised of five elements in the A Level course, assessed over two written exams and one independent project: 1. Remembered Places 2. Imagined Worlds 3. Poetic Voices 4. Writing about Society 5. Critical Commentary 6. Dramatic Encounters 7. Making Connections. You will be examined at the end of the first year, anyone leaving the course at that point will get an AS Level qualification. To achieve the full A Level you will need to take all of the assessed units together at the end of the second year of the course, including topics taken in Year 12. Further Opportunities This course complements other Advanced Level courses or could lead onto Higher Education in English Literature Studies, or other Higher Education courses. With further training, you could go into a job related to English Literature Studies, such as a teacher, journalist or author.
