Our AS and A-level English Language specifications will enable students to build on the skills they've developed at GCSE, by engaging creatively and critically with a wide range of texts and discourses.

Our flexible new specifications will give you the scope to bring your own unique skills and specialisms to the classroom, and get the best possible results for your students.

You'll use exciting and relevant text and data-based sources to teach what you enjoy and to inspire your students in their study of English Language.

Our English AS and A-levels provide strong stand-alone qualifications that are designed to be co-teachable. This gives you and your students valuable choice.
