Key Stage 4

Key Stage 4: Year 9 -11

We follow the AQA GCSE syllabus for both English Language and English Literature. All English GCSEs are now 100% examination focussed – graded 1- 9 (9 being the highest). *Speaking and listening must be conducted and filmed to ensure students are awarded their English GCSE.   

From 2017 our Year 10 students will study and practice for the AQA English Literature GCSE and sit the examination in 2018. In Year 11, they will then study and practice for the AQA English Language GCSE and sit the examination in 2019.

The current Year 11 students will have studied and practiced for both English Literature and English Language - from Year 10 - and will take both the English Literature and Language examinations in 2018.
