A-Level Taster Sessions: English Literature and Film Studies

We are pleased to offer A-Level taster lessons for students interested in choosing English Literature and/or Film Studies for their A-Levels.

These sessions will run Thursday 27th June, Period 2 for Literature and Period 3 for Film, both in Y13 with Mrs Aldridge.

In the Literature session, you will look at an extract from one of the texts on the syllabus, learn how to analyse it in response to a critical idea or viewpoint and work on producing a explorative and perceptive response to it. The texts on offer include Jane Eyre, The Great Gatsby, Rebecca, Tess of the d'Urbervilles and Wuthering Heights.

In the Film Studies session, you will look at an extract from one of the films on the syllabus, learn how to decode specific film making techniques, and apply a key aspect of film theory. The films on offer include One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Vertigo, Inception, Captain Fantastic and Sightseers.
