English Literature is an A-level for students who love reading and enjoy sharing their views on literature with like-minded souls. If you enjoy talking about your own perceptions of texts based on critical reflection and your enjoyment of literature, then this could be the course for you.
A minimum grade B/5 or above is required in both GCSE English Language and English Literature to study English Literature at Bilborough.

We are proud to see many of our students going on to study English-related degrees – as well as English Literature there are Creative Writing courses, American Studies and even Law. English Literature is a preferred subject for the Russell Group universities (something they call a ‘facilitating subject’) and highly valuable for those thinking of going into teaching. Our past students say that A-level English Literature at Bilborough prepared them well for their degree courses and they enjoy coming back to talk to our current students about their experiences.
