GCSE English Language & Literature
Dear Parent / Carer
As you are aware your child has already started the English Literature course with the intention of completing the GCSE exam at the end of Year 10. However, after much consideration we feel that it is in their best interest to give additional time for the course and further develop students’ examination skills. Therefore, as a result all students will follow a 2 year combined Language and Literature linear course and sit all examinations at the end of Year 11. We believe this additional time will support the needs of all students to ensure that they reach their full potential in both GCSE English Language and Literature.
Over the summer holidays please encourage your child to continue to read as widely as possible to develop their literature skills. We also sell English Literature set text revision guides in school through Parentpay. The revision guides are a great tool to consolidate learning at home.
We hope that you have a restful summer break and look forward to seeing your child on Wednesday 5th September.
Mr Vickers & Miss Franklin
Acting Head Teacher
