Learning & Achieving Together

Key Stage 5 English

We are one of the few schools to offer students the opportunity to explore English Literature and English Language, singly or in combination at AS and A2 levels.

It is our firm belief that all students are capable of gaining certificates in both subjects. During the course, teachers support their students individually, which means working closely with them to ensure they achieve their potential.
