A Level English Language & Literature at The Creative & Media Studio School at Netherhall Learning Campus
English Language and Literature A-Level aims to provide students with the invaluable foundation for a selection of vocations. The structure of the course covers both the skills and techniques in Language and Literature and develops a mature outlook on the linguistics found throughout the modes of texts discovered throughout the world. Learners will gain an A-Level which is joint Language and Literature. This qualification is universally respected and beneficial for various vocations including journalism, editing, creative writing, politics and marketing.
Which syllabus do we follow? AQA AS (7706) and A-level (7707) English Language and Literature.
Minimum grade 5 in GCSE English Language and Literature (9-1). Grade 4 in one discipline considered if grade 6 reached in the other.
These qualifications are linear. This means that students will sit all the AS exams at the end of their AS course and all the A-level exams at the end of their A-level course. There is a highly engaging and exciting coursework element to the A-level in which students get to produce an investigation on their chosen literary and non-literary texts.
