Climb To Nine: Grade 9 in English Programme

CLIMB

At Little Lever, we want to help every person achieve things they never thought they could. We know that some of our students are capable of achieving the highly-sought-after grade nine in English and we want to help you on your way. We are looking for five Year 10 students who are willing to commit to working towards this grade. You must be motivated, willing to complete work independently, and read widely. As part of the ‘Climb to Nine’ group, you will receive extra, specialist teaching that will enable you to write about our GCSE texts to A-level standard and beyond.

As part of the ‘Climb to Nine’ group, you will:  

- Receive extra, specialist teaching that will enable you to write about our GCSE texts to A-level standard and beyond  

- Be assigned a mentor (in the form of an English teacher) who will help you with independent research and developing an academic writing style.  

- Be given extra-curricular opportunities that will widen your experience of reading  

- Receive reading recommendations that will enable you to improve your knowledge of the texts discussed  

- Be part of an online classroom that will support you with your studies and where you can discuss complex ideas with like-minded students and teachers  

- Need to commit to an extra lesson after school every Friday (this will be no more than one hour)  

- Read widely  

- Be willing to work hard in order to achieve a high grade in English.

 

As there are only five place available, you need to apply. You will need to write a letter to Mrs Gray stating your interest in this select group. In the letter you should:  

- explain why you would be the perfect candidate for this group  

- talk about what you like to read/have read recently

 

If you would like a more detailed list of what you should include, speak to Mrs Gray (in E4) who has a more detailed criteria for the letter.

You may also be interviewed as part of this process. You must submit your letter by 14th December 2018.
