We aim to deliver lessons for all students in a fun, stimulating and challenging way, whilst ensuring that we equip students with the crucial literacy skills required for the world of work and life. The English Faculty is committed to developing literacy skills and therefore we encourage students to develop a love of reading, writing and expressing themselves with clarity. To encourage students to read for pleasure, all students visit the school library regularly and have calendared reading enrichment activities across the year. Essential skills such as spelling, punctuation and grammar are explicitly taught as part of the English curriculum. Students are taught in sets in both key stages to ensure that students maximize their abilities.
As we are located in the brand new English block, students learn in a state of the art environment including interactive projectors in bright, airy collaborative classrooms. Currently we have ten English teachers as well as one dedicated Learning Support Assistants. Homework, which is compulsory, is set in both key stages and we encourage parents to support us to ensure that homework is completed to the standard and that students meet deadlines.
