Edexcel GCSE English 2018 Core Student Book

A new kind of GCSE English textbook!


Supporting you throughout the Pearson Edexcel GCSE (9-1) English Language course, our new student book is your go-to resource for papers 1 and 2. Take a look at free samples.

We listened to your feedback after the first GCSE (9-1) results to develop carefully a complete course, based on proven methodology, which focuses on the areas where students need the most support. It’s bursting with activities to develop skills, understanding and confidence around 19th, 20th and 21st century texts.

Authored by Esther Menon, Martin Philllips, Emma Clark, and David Grant.

What will you find inside?

  • Coverage of the reading and writing skills students need for papers 1 and 2.

  • 19th-century fiction and 20th and 21st-century non-fiction, chosen to match the style and level that you’ll find in the Edexcel GCSE exam papers.

  • An entire section devoted to breaking down the skills your students need, question by question.

  • Ongoing ‘mini assessments’ and progress checkers, leading up to a practice exam paper.

  • Ideas for writing workshops, developed by an exam-board trainer.

  • Free teacher access to digital copies of all the course’s texts - so you can use and annotate the extracts as you need.
