Specification: CAMBRIDGE CIE 0486
The Cambridge IGCSE English Literature syllabus teaches pupils to read, interpret and evaluate texts from some of the greatest English literature ever written. Deeper themes, meanings, contexts and attitudes are explored and pupils learn to utilise this in their own creative writing. Pupils are taught to connect the wider themes of historical literature to the contemporary setting. This qualification requires a personal response and pupils will grow and develop a deeper understanding of themselves.
The Cambridge IGCSE English Literature syllabus enables pupils to progress on to Cambridge A Level English Literature which will open opportunities to study further at university.
Teacher assessments are continuous during LIVE TAUGHT lessons, marking of coursework and assignments and summative tests.
Homework will be given at the end of each week, usually in the form of problems to solve, researching key concepts.
Parents have 24 /7 access to all of their children's coursework.
Additionally the school holds 3 parent consultaions per year - one each term.
