Are you prepared for GCSE English?
In order to progress further all students are expected to attain a Grade 4/ 5 or above in English Language. A good English exam grade demonstrates to future employers and Higher Education tutors they will be able to cope confidently with the demands of their work.
For GCSE English we concentrate on improving the student's comprehension, spelling, grammar and essay writing skills to give them the confidence to write fluent and well structured essays. As they approach their examinations the students are able to work through past papers under exam conditions, which are then marked with the Examination Boards criteria in mind.
Solid English skills are always essential in other subjects of the secondary school curriculum; they allow pupils to accurately extract information from written sources and then to express themselves effectively whether in arts or science topics.
Many regard good English skills as essential to success in life in general. They are a basic requirement for most jobs, allowing effective communication with friends, family and colleagues. They also help appreciate many aspects of life today. Prospective employers increasingly demand a high level of both written and spoken English whether for that first job or later on in chosen career progressions.
