Enquiring Minds Wanted...
In September, we will be running a series of English Literature seminars for Year 10 students looking to extend and develop their understanding of English Literature. The initiative is titled, 'The Invention of Mankind', and will be structured using Shakespeare's 'Seven Stages of Man' speech.
Each seminar will tackle a pivotal 'stage' in life using a selection of relevant and engaging literary extracts. Our hope is that the students will not only enjoy reading and discussing these literary snippets, but the process will also enable them to challenge and critique our understanding of humanity, as presented in literature. The sessions have been designed to complement the GCSE curriculum, with the intention of covering grade 9 level content.
