English Key Stage 4

Year 10

In year 10, pupils study a range of poetry from the Conflict cluster in the Edexcel anthology and then begin to learn about the skills required to analyse texts for the English Language examination. After this, we revise Shakespeare text, currently Macbeth, and The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, by Robert Louis Stevenson.

Year 11

Pupils spend time improving their writing skills and reading a range of fiction and non-fiction texts in preparation for the English Language examinations. Students will continue to revise for their English Literature paper.
