We have worked closely with teachers and universities to develop an integrated approach to our specifications so your students will deepen their understanding of both language and literature, and enrich their experience of English.

Designed to ensure the right balance and coverage of the two disciplines, these specifications enable students to see how linguistic and literary methods are related and to explore these links in their work.

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.

My favourite English teacher was Mrs Warhurst - she made things engaging and encouraged me to take risks and be creative.
