It is now compulsory for all students to study English Language and English Literature at GCSE level.  The English department aims to inspire and instil a life-long love of literature in all students.  We encourage students to read for pleasure, at home on a regular basis (approximately 20 to 30 minutes every day) as we believe that this will significantly increase their chances of gaining the equivalent of a good pass or higher in English Language GCSE and English Literature GCSE.
