GCSE English Reading List

March 07, 2017

This resource is a compilation of recent GCSE set texts, across the exam boards.


GCSE English students are encouraged to read widely and this extensive list provides a challenging array of novellas, novels and plays. It is also an excellent spring board for A Level students.


This is a resource I share with my own students, to whom I love lending from my private collection.
