Curriculum / Courses


English Literature


A-Level English Literature offers clear progression from GCSE allowing students to develop the knowledge and understanding that they have already gained and achieved. Students will be able to develop a wide range of skills, such as reading critically, analysing, evaluating, and undertaking independent research,which are valuable for further study and future employment. At Charter Academy, we put the telling of stories at the heart of our literature teaching. As such, this A-Level is suitable for any pupils who love literature and storytelling.

Students can gain a solid understanding of how texts can be connected and how they can be interpreted in multiple ways. Students can arrive at their interpretations and become confident autonomous readers. They are then equipped with the knowledge and skills needed for both exams and coursework and experience a rich, challenging and coherent approach to English literature that provides an excellent basis for studying the subject at university.
