Resources for Schools

Please make use of our resources to enhance your students' learning and encourage their love of English Literature. 


Our short YouTube videos will help students with key skills such as close reading and contextualising texts. Our academic staff analyse texts including Zadie Smith's 'White Teeth', Virginia Woolf's 'Mrs Dalloway' and Shakespeare's 'Othello'.

Meg, one of our current BA Art and English Literature students, is keen to inspire the next generation of literature lovers. She has combined her creative talent with her passion to create a series of posters for teachers to use in their displays. You can download them from here.


We run interactive sessions on what studying English Literature is like at university with our partners Channel Talent, designed to fit into the teaching timetable. We may also be able to run bespoke webinar sessions for your school or college, subject to staff availability. If this sounds interesting to you and you would like to discuss possible topics with us, please get in touch.
