In the first three years, English is taught in form groups of approximately 20-22 students. The Department has its own flexible Key Stage 3 English Programme, which is subject to continuous review and development. In Years 10 and 11, English sets consist of approximately 12 to 23 students and follow the Edexcel IGCSE course for English Language (Specification A) and CAIE English Literature (0992). We teach the Eduqas English Literature A level as a linear course.
