GCSE English Literature

GCSE English Literature (CCEA Specification)

English Literature is offered as an optional subject at GCSE.  This enjoyable and popular course affords opportunities to engage with a range of both classic and contemporary texts and aims to encourage pupils to become critical readers of prose, drama and poetry as well as nurturing a lifelong love of literature.

​Pupils complete 50% of the course in Year 11: a controlled assessment worth 20% of the total GCSE grade which requires pupils to respond to a Shakespeare play, and The Study of Prose, which is assessed through external examination worth 30%.  Pupils will study either Animal Farm or Of Mice and Men and a selection of nineteenth-century prose extracts.

In Year 12, pupils will study a modern play, such as Blood Brothers or An Inspector Calls and an anthology of poems provided by CCEA.

Below is a brief overview of the course; however, you will find additional information, support materials and past papers on the CCEA website.
