We have worked closely with teachers and universities to develop relevant, engaging and up-to-date specifications that approach the study of literature through the lens of historicism.

The specifications encourage independent study of a range of texts within a shared context. Studied together they create an understanding of English Literature that will deepen your students' knowledge and love of the subject.

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.
