  • Our Poetry courses are designed to help students analyse poems by delving into the use of literary devices to create a desired impact. They cover a wide array of both local and international poems thoughtfully organised into popular themes. This course runs for 13 weeks and offers three distinct cycles throughout the year. This means students have the flexibility to refine their poetry skills continuously as they can attend more than one course cycle. Moreover, students can attend all three runs of the Poetry course since we cover different poems in each cycle.

  • Considering the wide variety of texts taught in different schools, our Set Text course is structured based on the demand for specific texts. This course will run for two 13-week cycles – before their Weighted Assessments and before the End-of-Year exams – since schools examine set texts at various times of the year. Our approach covers popular texts from both prose and drama genres. In this course, students learn to analyse every page meticulously through close reading and craft well-structured essays to eloquently convey their perspectives. By the end of the course, students will have achieved mastery over their chosen text.
