We have worked closely with teachers and universities to develop relevant, engaging and up-to-date specifications that approach the study of literature with a focus on genre and theory.

The texts we've chosen for your students inter-connect, influence and illuminate each other, encouraging independent study. The specifications give you the freedom to develop your own content, inject your own creativity and teach in a way that brings enjoyment to you and your students.

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.
