New Year, New You

Posted: December 10, 2015 in Uncategorized


As we approach the end of term, it’s good to spend some time reflecting on how you did over the last term, but it’s also good to focus on what you will do differently next term.

January will be a busy time, there will be new units of study to start and mock exams to prepare for. Here’s a run down of what’s to come…

Year 10 – we will be heading into the dark world of witchcraft and regicide in Shakespeare’s iconic Scottish play, Macbeth.

Year 11 will be continuing with their literature course, studying Susan Hill’s classic Victorian pastiche The Woman in Black with it’s fabulous blend of gothic and ghost story elements.

Year 12 will be starting their year with mock AS exams focusing on: The Tempest or Twelfth Night (Component 1 Shakespeare), The Great Gatsby (Component 2 Prose post 1900).

Following the exams, they will embark on new units: Alan Bennett’s play The History Boys (Component 2 Drama post 1990) and selected poems of Christina Rossetti (Component 1 Poetry pre-1900)

Year 13 (A2) will be completing coursework and covering the work of William Blake to compare with John Ford and studying Shakespeare’s The Tempest with Mrs Statters.

Don’t forget, you can find a range of resources to support your learning, right here on the Blog. Details of courses and units can be found at the top of the homepage.

PS It’s never too soon to start revision! 🙂
