Industry leading courses

From the spoken voice to the written word, language is woven into our everyday lives. Whether you are passionate about reading literature, are interested in exploring how the English language was formed, or are fascinated by foreign languages and cultures- such as French and Spanish, these A Level subjects are sure to satiate your curiosity.

When you study a foreign language, you will translate to and from the target language, develop your speaking and listening skills, and study the heritage of their rich and diverse cultures.

The English subjects will develop your analytical skills, your critical understanding and your ability to build logical arguments. English Literature is a facilitating subject - which means it is sought after by universities, while English Language is a strong basis for anyone wanting to pursue a career in teaching.

"I have my amazing teachers to thank for encouraging me to believe in myself and achieve the best grades that I could."
