These courses develop skills that are highly-valued by further education institutions and potential employers. We hope to develop a love of reading in students, particularly as research has proved beyond doubt that readers are generally more successful than non-readers in many areas of life and work.

There is an oral assessment but this does not constitute a part of students' final grades.
