Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5627)
"I really liked the resource. It has links between KS3 and KS4, and there are plenty of examples that the students can work their way through." R Smart, English Teacher
"This is a nice resource that would be helpful in accompanying a scheme of work or perhaps used as homework or cover lessons. The differentiation that is supplied here is definitely the strength of the resource." E Gasan, English Teacher
"I was impressed at how well this was tailored to the different tiers of learning. I liked the way GCSE was referenced regularly, allowing the students to see the value of the skills and preparing them adequately. The range of texts for studying and practice is nice and broad and easy to engage with." Penglais English Department
"A welcome addition to any English department. It meets the new curriculum demands well at various ability levels. There is a wide range of texts included from various sources which will benefit students. The tasks are clearly differentiated but allow the class to discuss the texts as a group. They are appropriately pitched which allows all students to make progress." K Greaves, English Teacher
"It was comprehensive, especially in its differentiation. Very creative too! The questions and tasks are thoughtful and require learners to engage their critical faculties. I like the fact that it has the differentiated activities that groups could be working on in the same class. This is definitely the highlight for me." A Baiden, English Teacher
"An incredibly useful resource with endless possibilities. I like the way the resource is organised into text type and also the similarities between the different sections. What is also fantastic is that the texts are current, accessible and enjoyable to work with. It develops core skills of comprehension, inference and writing about language, structure and form and the effects which are essential for any learner regardless of curriculum content. It is also useful for cover work. This resource is almost future-proof!" P Town, KS3 English Coordinator and Teacher
