Dear Parents/Carers 

As students begin their GCSE courses in English Literature and Language, the English Department would like to ensure students are developing a range of skills that will equip them for their exams. 

In order to ensure we are able to support our students with a comprehensive understanding of their key Literature texts, as well as helping them develop their annotation skills, we would like to ask you to purchase a copy of ‘Macbeth’ for their use in class. 

By purchasing a copy of the text, students can write their notes alongside the text to support their understanding of the play as well as providing them with the opportunity to create a revision tool that they can use in year 11. 

The text we have selected is: 

  • CGP Macbeth – The Complete Play with Annotations, Audio and Knowledge Organisers 

The text retails at £6.50 but we are able to purchase these at a discounted price of £3.15 if you purchase directly from us and order through ParentPay. Once you have paid for a copy, English teachers will allocate a copy to your child. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. 

Yours faithfully 

Mrs AJ Webster 

Director of Learning – English
