English Language

A Level


 Language, the Individual and Society Pupils will study texts from different time periods and compare the language used and the meanings conveyed. They will go on to study children’s language development from 0-11 years and how they learn to speak, read and write.

Language Diversity and Change Pupils will study how diverse the English Language is and how it has changed from Old English to Contemporary English. They will also build on their writing skills, adapting their style to fit a variety of forms whilst debating English Language issues. 

Language in Action This involves a language investigation and a directed writing task where pupils are free to choose an area of study that is of interest to them.
