Here in the English Department, every student is given the opportunity to develop an understanding and appreciation of a wide range of literature. Students study a wide range of texts each year including novels, plays and poetry. These positive experiences of authors and the language they use, adds to the overall diet diet the students receive.
At Key stage 3, the English curriculum also allows students to develop the skills required for study at GCSE.
We believe that to be an effective writer, means that students are encouraged to be creative, analytical and freethinking in their language choices.
Equally important to us is to develop a natural pathway from the work we will do here, to the wide variety of exciting jobs that come with the right qualifications in English.
