Aims and ambitions:

Our ENGLISH Curriculum is designed to expand an appreciation and enjoyment of the subject.  Topics provide a varied and rich diet of our language and literary heritage.  Knowledge and skills are introduced and regularly revisited, enabling confidence and accomplishment to develop. We want all our students to have a love of English and English literature. We hope to achieve this by exploring a wide variety of texts, genres and writing from different cultures. We ensure that students understand the historical context of texts when giving a contemporary analysis. Teaching will challenge students of all abilities and promote independent thinking and creativity. We encourage our students to have a pleasure of language and Literature, and hope they choose to continue with their studies at A Level in our Sixth Form.
