GCSE TEXTS

Students will be lent a copy of each exam text.  They will not be able to write in the text and they will need to pay for a replacement should they lose a copy of a text.  

However, some students prefer to have their own copies of examination texts because they can then annotate them and highlight them in order to help with revision.  As we study each text, we will place a link to Amazon showing the edition of the text which we will use in class.  As you will see, it is sometimes possible to purchase used texts at a lower price.

This term, we will be studying Blood Brothers: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Blood-Brothers-Methuen-Modern-Classics/dp/0413767701/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1441020662&sr=8-1&keywords=bloodbrothers
