Welcome to the Key Stage 4 English page. Hopefully you will find the information provided of use. This section of the website has been designed to allow pupils and parents to access important revision tools and materials, in order to help prepare our KS4 pupils for their GCSE examinations in English.
On this page, you will find links to a variety of materials. A useful link to begin with is the ‘GCSE English Overview’. This will advise you of the two different GCSE routes we offer at NLS at GCSE English and a useful summary of each route is provided. You will then be able to navigate relevant links and revision materials.
At NLS we are committed to promoting Independent Learning, and this ethos is certainly true within the English Department. We do expect pupils to take responsibility for their own learning and this is something we aim to instil throughout KS3. As students move into KS4, we do raise our expectations and we aim to encourage pupils as far as possible, to develop a sense of responsibility for their learning. This includes certain expectations of behaviour. Year 10 and 11 are crucial years and we want each and every pupil to finish Year 11 with grades in English that they can be proud of – grades that will provide the stepping stones for the next level, as they lay the foundations for their future. We therefore ask and encourage you to have regular learning conversations with your child about their progress and attitude towards learning. Please also remind them often that homework is a vital aspect of the course and any homework set – especially at GCSE level – should be treated seriously and deadlines should be adhered to.
Within the English department, we are committed to providing your child with the best opportunities available, in order to support them in reaching and achieving their full potential. Therefore, please regularly check this site for updates and new material.
Please feel free to contact me and/or your child’s individual English teacher if you have any questions, concerns or comments.
