Year 11 – study Poems from Other cultures as part of their GCSE course. These poems cover racism, persecution, victims of violence, place, identity, cultures and conflict.

Paper One covers a range of non-fiction texts and allows students to access topical and up to date material that is currently in the Media.

The department have well-established links with Shirebrook Library – in recent years we have had students working on various projects in the Library and then doing presentations to parents and peers with the support of the Librarian.
