International GCSE English Literature Taught Online Course LIVE LESSONS from Cambridge UK



The International 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 International IGCSE English Literature syllabus enables pupils to progress on to 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.

Parents are responsible for arranging their child's examinations at their local registered examination centre. Cambridge Home School students study from every part of the globe and so it is not practical for the school to offer a single venue to sit examinations.. Consequently Cambridge Home School is not registered with Cambridge International Examinations but has partnerships with examination centres registered with Cambridge International Examinations, Edexcel, OCR, AQA and will support students in locating a suitable venue for sitting their written and practical examinations.
