English Language A Level
It’s quite a leap from GCSE English Language to A Level. If you already know your graphemes from your phonemes you’re off to a good start, but with many theories and theorists to get to grips with, and a whole world of context to take into account, it would be easy to feel somewhat swamped. But fear not, our tutors know their stuff and can serve as a guide through the mire of information and keep it interesting at the same time.
Common Areas of Study:
- Language diversity and change
- Textual variations and representations

- Lexis and semantics

English Literature A Level
Even the most dedicated bookworm might baulk at the amount of reading required for the Literature A Level. From Shakespeare to Shelley and beyond, there is a lot to take on board; remembering whether it was Hemingway or Hill who said ‘there is nothing worse than war’, or whether the Tenant was at Northanger Abbey or Wildfell Hall, is just not enough. Luckily our tutors are experts and can help with all that the syllabus demands, from analysis to argument and content to context.
Possible areas of study
- Gothic Literature
- Women in Literature (writers/perceptions)
- Literature through the ages
- War Poetry
