We've teamed up with Edexcel to create special collections of resources to support delivery of their 2012 GCSE English, English Language and 2012/2013 English Literature specifications.

We've published collections of resources for the Unit 1 Controlled Assessment English and English Language units, and four of the 'Different Cultures' prose texts - see below!

Resources for the spoken language study for GCSE English Language, Unit 3, based on Edexcel's Spoken Language CD are also available here.
