KS4 English

In Year 9, students begin to study their GCSE texts, which include ‘Blood Brothers’, ‘A Christmas Carol’, ‘The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’ and ‘Romeo and Juliet’. This is quite demanding as they are required to write essays for each text in the exam without the use of the books, therefore we revise the titles throughout Year 10 and Year 11. They practise writing stories and other formats such as letters, reviews, speeches, reports and blogs whilst also improving their spelling, punctuation and grammar.

They are required to complete a Spoken Language task in order to gain their GCSE in English Language and this takes the form of a speech, presentation or group discussion.
