  • + Course: English Literature A Level

"English literature at A level standard is a challenging yet fun subject I particularly enjoy class discussions on the prose and poems we read in class; where everyone's interpretation of the work is equally valued and no-one is wrong. When I first started the course some of the books seemed daunting but the teachers created a lively atmosphere where people were given the opportunity to enact different characters' roles bringing the book to life, allowing the real to seem real."

- Nilofer

Nilofer came to us in August 2010 because she decided that she would benefit from a more supportive atmosphere than was available to her at her choice of college for 2009/10. In her first year she improved her AS Maths and Media result by several grades and undertook English Literature AS for the first time, finishing with a C grade.
