Qs about cie checkpoint English

    I've been offered a job teaching KS3 English (years 8 and 9) at a school abroad which is going to start the cie exams and I I have very little idea of what to expect re resources at the school.
    I've Googled the Checkpoint English books and the blurb for the students' books appears to promise that if you buy the books, you don't need any extra resources. Does this really mean that the course book is enough for students to pass the course and that there's no need to supplement the books with extra texts/novels/plays? Or would I have to make sure the school also has a selection of class sets of novels/plays etc? (If so, does anyone know what's recommended reading for stages 8 and 9 of the cie secondary 1 syllabus?) It's best to find out before going abroad as I won't be able to nip into Waterstones at the weekend!
    Thanks in advance for any help/tips/advice
