Welcome to English

As a year 9 student, you will be working towards your GCSE in both English Language and English Literature.

Whilst studying English Literature, you will examine a range of texts such as plays, novels and poetry. Your studies will take you on a journey through time, from Renaissance Verona, through Victorian London, to the World Wars. You will learn to understand the time periods texts were written in, and the purposes that writers wanted to achieve.

Your English Language studies will allow you build your confidence in reading a range of texts such as: newspapers, letters, speeches and leaflets. You will be able to experiment with, and develop your creative writing style and learn how to be persuasive with your own ideas.
