2 What will students study? All students will complete two GCSE subjects: GCSE English Language and GCSE English Literature. The focus of Year 10 will be in completing GCSE English Language and GCSE English Literature controlled assessments. The focus of Year 11 will be focused upon preparing for both GCSE English Language and GCSE English Literature exams.

3 Single Gender Groups Some students are completing their GCSE English Language/Literature courses in single gender groups. This allows teaching staff to target students with appropriate and engaging texts to suit their needs. This year male teachers will be teaching boy groups and female teachers are teaching girl groups.

4 Text Selections Teaching staff will determine the texts being studied by groups for the GCSE Examinations. Text selection will be based upon student interest, accessibility and the ability to stretch and challenge students. All students will study Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck for the Unit 1 Examination. Students will be informed of their texts for Unit 2 (the second examination unit) after Christmas. We strongly advise that students have their own copies of texts to annotate them for revision.
