English Literature GCSE
No Controlled Assessment
Led by: Mrs F Norton
What will I be studying ?
Students will study a diverse range of texts by authors such as Willy Russell, Alan Bennett and William Shakespeare. They will also learn how social, historical and cultural context impacts on these works, encountering issues such as racism, the changing roles of women and even the impact of music in play texts.
What can I do after wards?
The skills developed while studying English can open the door to an incredible variety of careers and courses, with many further education courses and jobs now requiring a GCSE qualification in this subject. Students can choose to study English at A Level and then as a degree subject or to enable you to enter professions such as a law, journalism, teaching, social work, engineering and the armed forces.
“Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry.”

Well done to Tom, Jess, Lola and Matilda who were on Radio York today! They were describing how they were inspired by Freya Cox, former student now on the great British Bake Off, who visited last week. They were amazing - so confident and articulate! #TeamGraham #GoFreya pic.twitter.com/axik…
