Use the menu to select the appropriate area for your needs.

The STUDENT area contains notes for A Level English Language and combined Language and Literature. There are detailed notes on the various frameworks for analysis, plus information on topics for Language A Level and tips for exams and the NEA for the AQA A Level. There are also links to other English resources, advice for the future, and reading for pleasure recommendations.


The TEACHER area contains links to further resources, as well as advice on incorporating reading for pleasure into lessons on reading and writing. The teacher area is what I’m developing at the moment. Teachers are also likely to find the blog of interest.


My BLOG focuses on books – recent YA and children’s publishing in particular, with brief reviews and themed recommendation clusters to help teachers get a wider range of books into classrooms.


The WRITING area is where you can find all my books, but also links to my favourite online writing resources and advice. I’ve also put together some advice for teachers interested in breaking into educational writing.
