This course provides students with another opportunity to secure a grade 4 in GCSE English Language. All students on the course will study the new GCSE specification introduced for first examination in the 2016/2017 school year, regardless of any previous attempts. The exam board is AQA.

Throughout, students will be supported in developing their writing including demonstrating a con dent control of Standard English, writing grammatically correct sentences and deploying gurative language.
The course offers a skill based approach and is assessed in two written examinations that take place at the end.
