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.

The year 7s attended a basketball tournament last night at Scalby School. Overall it was a very promising performance from the boys that attended. For some of them this was their first time playing basketball and they all thoroughly enjoyed taking part. #TeamGraham pic.twitter.com/tfV8…
