English A level texts at Langley Grammar

Hi everyone, I'm hoping there are some kind and helpful members from here who can tell me a bit about the Sixth Form English department at Langley Grammar.

Specifically, I would like to know:
1. What are the texts from the English Literature Edexcel curriculum taught at LGS?
2. What's the English department like? As in strengths and weaknesses, areas where the teachers might be said to specialise in?

From the LGS website, one can see the following:
Component one, drama:

Dr Faustus
Component two, prose:

novel one
novel two
Component three, poetry:

Poems of the Decade
The Wife of Bath Prologue and Tale, Chaucer
Component four, coursework:

introduction and preparation
Component one, drama:

King Lear
Component four, coursework:

It's not very clear what novels are taught currently.

Also it would be great if the above could be confirmed.

Thanks

Hey. I don’t go to Langley grammar but at my school , the text you study depends on your teacher. So you don’t actually know until September and you may have friends in your year studying different books. If you’re really keen to know, it may be worth sending the school an email.
