A’level Japanese


The content of A’level Japanese is structured across themes. These are;

  • Japanese society past and present

  • Japanese artistic and intellectual culture past and present

It allows our students to build on the language skills they will have developed through their GCSE study whilst preparing them with transferable skills to support their future progression on into further study. Students will be inspired to develop appreciation of Japanese language, literature, film and culture alongside a choice of classic and contemporary texts and film.


Students are assessed at the end of the course through 3 externally examined papers. These are;

  • Translation into English, reading comprehension and writing

  • Translation into Japanese and written response to works
