In A-level English Language, we follow the OCR course; this necessitates close focus on the English language in its widest sense and involves analysis of power, gender and technology and how it affects language use. Second year modules examine child language acquisition and language change over time.
English Literature adheres to the AQA specification and takes in modules such as social and political protest writing, comedy and tragedy; there is room for coursework submissions looking at modern poetry and the modern novel. Authors studied include Miller, Hosseini, Crace, Blake and, naturally, Shakespeare.
A classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say.
Italo Calvino, The Uses of Literature
I know nothing in the world that has as much power as a word. Sometimes I write one, and I look at it, until it begins to shine.
