A-Level – English Literature
The English department aim to provide our English Literature students with an understanding of a wide-range of topics from Chaucer to present-day authors, including works in English from writers outside the UK. Works are studied from the three genres of drama, prose, and poetry. The dual aim of the A-Level course is to stimulate a personal, imaginative response to literary texts, and to develop the techniques of critical appreciation. It is this critical appreciation which we want students to adopt to their experiences outside of the classroom.
