English Literature set texts

Below is a list of the set English Literature texts that your child will need. They should have their own copy to prepare for their Literature GCSE.  

Your child will begin their study of 'DNA' immediately after Christmas.   If possible, and if you have not done so already, it would be beneficial to your child for you to buy their own copy of the play for annotation in lessons. They should also read the play over Christmas in preparation for teaching.

Many thanks for your continued support.
