Our new GCSE (9–1) English Language qualification has been designed to engage and motivate students through a choice of contemporary texts, relatable modern themes, and real-world writing tasks.

We are offering this GCSE as an alternative option to our current GCSE English Language (1EN0), not as a replacement.
