In readiness for studying GCSE English Literature in September 2017, we would like to give all current Year 9 pupils the opportunity to purchase the set texts through school. One of the new challenges presented by the current curriculum is that the exams are ‘closed book’ which means pupils need a thorough knowledge of the texts so that they can recall significant moments and memorise important quotations. Having your own copy means that you have the opportunity to make detailed notes during class reading and at home.
Purchasing the books through school will offer you a small discount compared to general retail prices and ensure that you have full, good quality editions of the texts.
The cost is £15.00. This includes the three main texts studied for English Literature:
Macbeth by William Shakespeare (Longman School Shakespeare, ISBN: 9781408236864)
Lord of the Flies by William Golding (Faber, ISBN: 9780571191475)
OR An Inspector Calls by J.B Priestley (Heinemann Plays, ISBN: 9780435232825)
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde by R.L Stevenson (Wordsworth Classics, ISBN: 9781853260612)
Although it would be beneficial, please be assured that copies of the above texts will be made available to all students so there is no obligation to buy the text. School copies, however, cannot be annotated so pupils will need to find alternative ways of making notes.
Please make payments via the ParentPay link on the school website. The deadline has been extended until Friday 15th September 2017. All books ordered will be given to out to pupils in September 2017 in English lessons.
