Course Overview

This course prepares students to sit the Edexcel IGCSE in English Language (Specification A). It is a one-year course suitable for any student hoping to sit their exam in June 2025. It assumes KS3 level has already been attained.

“Because many English skills improve naturally with age during the teenage years, I strongly recommend that your child doesn’t sit the English exam until they are at least 15 years old.”

Course Method

This course is focused on two anthologies of literature: one of various non-fiction texts, and one of poetry and fiction. By studying such a wide range of writings (the good, the great, and the mediocre), students develop the skills of an effective communicator and an astute reader – as well as becoming prepared for the exam.

Lessons are a mixture of lecture-style teaching sessions with accompanying slides, and interactive class discussions.

Class notes, homework, and other resources are distributed on Google Classroom. Each student will therefore need their own, free, Google Classroom account. Access to a printer is necessary.

Weekly homework will mostly consist of a reading and a writing task. Writing tasks are submitted and marked on Google Classroom.

Lessons can be recorded and made available to the student, if the teacher is notified beforehand of a planned absence.
