English & Modern Languages Department
ENGLISH & MODERN LANGUAGES
We offer you a range of exciting Advanced Level Courses; a 1 year fast-track GCSE English resit and two Functional Skills’ Courses.
Currently we have c.850 students studying for one or more of our subjects. Clearly we are very popular because of our outstanding academic success and achievements, and our caring, relaxed yet professional relationships with students.
For some of these students we truly are a department of opportunity: 5 GCSEs grade C or better will ensure you a place. Behavioural and academic standards remain high however, and the department insists on pleasant relationships, hard work and the achievement of an academic personal best from our students. Teachers are all highly qualified Advanced Level specialists – we all work or have worked as examiners and / or coursework moderators. This experience gives us valuable knowledge of the expectations and requirements of the various exam boards, and this obviously helps students to achieve their best.
We have Open Evenings throughout the year and encourage school visits from Year 11 pupils. To find out about life in the Department of English, & Modern Languages, and indeed the College, you are welcome to contact our Marketing Officer who will make the arrangements.
