Resources for English language and literature

My DD (age 12) goes to a Spanish school and is loving it but I am working with her English teacher so that she can do more advanced stuff in her native language.

Can anyone point me me the direction of any good printed or online materials that she can follow with support from myself and her teacher? I am thinking of something like the revision books you can get for each key stage but with more activities and supplementary reading.

Ideally this would cover both grammar and introducing her to different literary forms. She is very good reader and loves creative writing but needs more 'formal' stuff on grammar and a structured approach to exploring English lit including plays, poetry and novels ('classics' and others)

Any help would be appreciated. TIA

You might be better off asking your question in general education as home educators may well not be using the sort if resources you are looking for - many people take a very different approach to school.
