This is an energetic, highly motivated and well resourced department that looks to find the best fit examinations for our students. We have recently switched our GCSE provision to EDUQAS and offer courses in GCSE English and English Literature. All pupils will be prepared from Year 7 through to Year 11 with those end examinations in mind.
As a core subject, we are also innovative and inspirational in developing pupils’ literacy skills across the curriculum. We cater effectively for pupils of all abilities and offer a range of teaching and learning experiences. We are also committed to promoting a love of reading and support. ‘Drop Everything and Read' (DEAR) as a curriculum initiative where all students in Year 7 & 8 commit to a period of private reading each day.
We want happy, engaged students who are able to become reflective, creative learners working both independently and co-operatively. We are also committed to enhancing the cultural, spiritual and moral development of our children through the study of literature and language.
