English

All English lessons are carefully planned to include a range of engaging and varied activities that cater for the needs of all students. Each lesson will include the use of colourful and stimulating resources and will involve interactive learning.

The course is assessed purely on examinations and all texts on the exam will be unseen. This means that teaching will be focused on reading and writing skills so students are ready to tackle unfamiliar texts.

Non-Fiction Reading and Writing

Students will be expected to produce one presentation or speech, including responses to questions and feedback.

Achievement in Spoken Language will be reported as part of the qualification, but it will not form part of the final mark and grade.
