What's Involved

Higher English is a rewarding and challenging course that seeks to widen and enrich your knowledge and engagement with the English language.  Through the study of both Language and Literature, you will have the opportunity to hone your own skills to a high level.

    The course will involve:

    • Studying language and literature (poems, drama novels/short stories)
    • Textual Analysis
    • Critical Essay
    • Close Reading and extensive practice in writing

    There are two assessments for Reading and Writing and the creation of a Writing Folio for External Assessment by the SQA. All internal NAB assessments are sat and marked in College, while the Folio is prepared in the student’s own time and submitted to the SQA for marking.

     

    Successful students will be presented for the Higher English exam.
