GCSE English Language

Whichever exam specification you are teaching, our GCSE English Language teaching resources have been selected to help you teach unseen fiction and non-fiction texts, descriptive, narrative and persuasive writing, SPaG essentials and spoken English. 

The printable reading skills worksheets include activities for reading comprehension, critical analysis, identifying and commenting on structural and language techniques, and evaluating writers’ vocabulary. Many have been written specifically for GCSE English Language students and include text extracts from the 19th-, 20th- or 21st-century. 

Our writing skills resources include activities to help learners to develop their creative writing skills, and use language imaginatively. Try our word banks and knowledge organisers to develop students’ vocabulary and literacy skills, or search for versatile teaching resources and practice writing tasks for non-fiction text types such as letters, articles, arguments and persuasive writing.

You’ll also find some fantastic worksheets with a range of ideas for spoken English tasks for presentations and assessments, and for developing learners’ oracy skills. 

With exam question resources (with mark schemes), past papers and exam skills packs for all of the exam boards, including AQA, WJEC Eduqas, OCR, Edexcel and the IGCSE specifications, you can also help students to prepare confidently for their exams.
