- For High School Students - ages 14-18
- Spring Course = 1 or 2 weeks (March - April)
- Summer course = 2 or 4 weeks
This course is designed to introduce students to plural genres and periods. Students study drama, poetry, and prose as they explore the renaissance, the romantic period, and our postmodern age.
Each unit of study is comprised of a lead text or figure but also introduces students to a broader range of writers and works of literature.
The program also involves stimulating excursions to the theatre, practical workshops, and writing skills clinics.
Students also participate in shared sessions with our Linguistics and Performing Arts course to allow students to think more about why we study language.
• English Literature & Creative Writing Course:
This innovative Reach Cambridge course introduces students to subjects beyond the scope of their current school courses, offering them a flavour of English Literature at university level. Students study drama, poetry and prose, and explore different literary movements, for example, the Renaissance, the Romantic period, and our Postmodern age.
Complementing the student's literary tuition with diverse exercises in creative writing under the leadership of professional writers, this English Literature & Creative Writing course encourages both critical and creative thinking. Students also participate in enriching local excursions (including to the theatre) to extend their learning beyond the classroom.
