COURSE DESCRIPTION

Study for your IGCSE in English Literature following the Cambridge exam board curriculum with a group of like-minded home-ed students.

Follow the Cambridge IGCSE English Literature course in this class which is suitable for students aged 13-16. In these weekly sessions, we will read and discuss a selection of short stories, poems, and a play. You will learn how to understand literature, as well as how to write about it. It is an advantage if you are a fluent reader. Each week we will explore specific themes before breaking off into small groups to discuss and debate what we have read. Reading aloud will always be optional, so you do not have to do so if you don’t want to. You will need to read the required chapters before each session, so you have plenty of ideas to share!

There are some exams at the end of the course. The exams will need to be sat externally at a testing centre near you, and you will receive an international qualification from Cambridge. There is a fee to enter the exams.

To prepare for the exams, you will be required to practise writing essays about the short stories, the play and the poetry. This will be monitored by your teacher and you will receive feedback after each. Of course, you may also complete the course without taking the final examination, if you wish to.

Unlike all our other courses, the price for IGCSE is £5.00 a week to reflect the amount of work the teacher will need to do to successfully guide you through your IGCSE.  All making and feedback is included in the price.  You will be expected to do 1 – 2 hours of independent work each week.

Our Page Turners and the Next Chapter book clubs are great for practising analysing text.  If you feel your child might benefit from extra practise at the skills needed for IGCSE English language or literature, please sign up for our book clubs too.
