English Language at Little Heath School

Course description

The A Level English Language course places an exciting emphasis on the ways in which language use has changed over time and location, as well as studying the ways in which young children develop language skills. It provides a fascinating insight into how we all use language every day, and why there are so many strong opinions about its use. The coursework module allows you to conduct your own investigation into aspects of language use and also requires you to write creatively.

Entry requirements

You will need a good set of GCSE passes at Grade A*-C, with at least a Grade B in English Language and Literature.

Although the reading requirements for the course are not as extensive as for the English Literature course, wider reading is still required, so an independent enjoyment of reading is essential.
