Where will this course lead?

A grade 4 in GCSE English Language is crucial to career progression and admission to university.

The new style GCSE English exams (first taken in June 2017) comprise 2 written exams and one spoken language assessment. Students no longer complete coursework. This course aims to familiarise you with the new style exams and to help you develop your own skills so that you can support your child in achieving a grade 4.
