Our GCSE English language course focuses primarily on the functional aspects of language. Oracy, reading and writing skills are life skills and are recognised in GCSE English Language.

Students will develop their ability to speak, read and write fluently, appropriately, effectively and critically – for a range of personal, functional and social purposes. Students will learn to respond to a wide range of challenging written texts.

The course covers a variety of texts from fiction to letters, reports, articles, reviews and diaries. Students will gain an understanding of the way a writer is influenced by their purpose and audience as well as by what is happening around them.

The Classroom Environment

Our online/in-person classes are small making learning more accessible for learners and gives the classroom environment a calm atmosphere to learn. Having a limited number of students in the classroom gives the students more one-on-one time with their teacher, for teachers to review students’ work, to provide feedback on what went well, and how to improve students’ work for the future.

About our teachers

Our teachers are enthusiastic about learning. Teachers will support students towards their individual pathways in education.. Our teachers are here to help!
