“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

Dr. Seuss


English at The Pingle Academy is full of exciting texts, characters and ideas to really foster a love for Literature and the written word. In year 7 and 8 we deliver the Accelerated Reading programme to encourage reading as a daily activity. The work covered in years 7, 8 and 9 develops and builds on the skills from primary school. Our units of work are thematically linked and cover a wide reaching time period; we explore text and writers from the early ages right up to the modern day and into the future. We want to enthuse students through diverse and thought-provoking material to ensure that reading stays with them throughout their lives. If you want to know more about the Key Stage 3 curriculum it can be found below.

As students move into Key Stage 4 and begin their GCSEs they will study two separate qualifications; GCSE English Language and GCSE English Literature. The course overview and examination paper structure can be found below.

At A Level we also offer two separate courses; A Level English Language and A Level English Literature. The course requirements and overviews can be found below.

In order to support students to fulfil their potential we have put together some helpful resources which can be found here.
