Curriculum Content

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left”]

Entry level English is offered to a number of our students. For students unable to access GCSE English, it provides a recognised qualification. For other students, it provides a structured stepping stone towards GCSE English.

Three levels of award are available: Entry 1, Entry 2 and Entry 3 and the level awarded is based on the student’s total mark out of 45.

There are three elements:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Speaking and Listening.
