Course programme

The GCSE English qualification is made up of a combination of 5 Controlled Assessments, undertaken in class throughout the year, as well as one final written examination at the end of the course. The Controlled Assessments are comprised of written responses to a prose text, a Shakespeare play and a selection of poems from different cultures, as well as two pieces of creative writing . There is also a Speaking & Listening component, again involving Controlled Assessment in the class. Students are prepared for all these assessments by undertaking a range of small and group discussions, reading, analysing and writing during class. The Controlled Assessments are 60% of the total GCSE English qualification. In the written examination at the end of the course students are required to respond to non-fiction texts and to produce non-fiction writing tasks. This final examination is 40% of the total GCSE English qualification.Through tutor guidance, handouts, worksheets, discussion questions, ICT, individual research, workshop sessions and practice examination questions.
