This Key Stage 3 English course will give students the ability and enthusiasm to develop essential skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing. Students will learn to express themselves creatively and to communicate with confidence and flair. The course acquaints the student with the richness of English Literature, which reflects the experience of people from many different countries and cultural backgrounds. This encourages the student to become a keen and perceptive reader of stories, poetry and drama, as well as non-fiction texts.
The course comprises separate materials for years 7, 8 and 9, and covers the study of poetry, prose fiction and drama, including Shakespeare. Aspects of the student’s own spoken and written work are also covered. Throughout his or her Key Stage 3 studies, the student will learn to:
- Plan, draft and present their own written work
- Imagine, explore and entertain through working with literature
- Inform, explain and describe in fiction and non-fiction writing
- Persuade, argue and advise in discussions

Key Stage 3 courses are normally divided into three separate one-year courses. These match typical school-based programmes for Years 7, 8 and 9. It is not necessary for students to be in the “appropriate” school year to tackle each of these courses because different students proceed at very different speeds. By the end of the Year 9 course, students are in a position to make a successful start on the equivalent GCSE or IGCSE course, perhaps at age 14.
