Students will complete this course looking at a range of text types across various genres. Whilst other Year 11 English courses are studied in themes, General English A will study a variety of text types, themes and settings. This makes it a good choice for students who may dislike the thematic courses on offer or are simply willing to explore a wide range of literature and genres.

The key skills covered in this programme are:

  • creative and formal writing
  • literature text studies
  • visual text creation and presentation
  • close reading
  • film analysis

Students will be expected to complete an independent reading programme as part of this and all other English courses.

This course is an Option A course, completing the same skills as Dystopian English, and War and Conflict but without a connected theme. All Year 11 students must select one course from Option A and one course from Option B to complete their English studies. 



There is one course assessment and three Year 11 Diploma assessments in this course.
