Dear Parent

Your son/daughter has recently begun the study of a new English language and literature GCSE syllabus. This will lead to a 100% terminal exam and the study of a range of new texts.  I have purchased a number of new textbooks (that can be accessed digitally at home) to support the new course.  In addition to this, there are a number of excellent CGP study guides that I recommend your son/daughter purchases to support their study of the new syllabus.  There are five study guides (detailed below) that I am happy to buy in at a discounted price for your son/daughter.  The total cost for 5 study guides will be £13.75 and can be added to your school bill:

English Literature AQA Poetry Guide “Power and Conflict” **

English Literature AQA Poetry Guide “Love and Relationships”*

English Literature Unseen Poetry Guide***

English Text Guide – Animal Farm**

English Text Guide – A Christmas Carol**

English Text Guide – Macbeth***

English Text Guide – An Inspector Calls*

English Text Guide – Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde*

Set One *         Set Two **       Both Sets ***

The purchase of these texts is not compulsory.  If you do want to purchase them, please fill in the slip below and return to me by Friday 2nd October.  In the meantime, do not hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any queries.

Yours faithfully

Mrs C Fryer

Head of English
