The English curriculum is designed to expose students to a wide range of text types, including prose, drama, poetry and non-fiction. Students begin to explore these texts at KS3 and then continue to develop and further their knowledge over the course of KS4 (and on into KS5 should they wish). Students are continually developing their skills in reading and writing and we aim to develop confident communicators who can express their opinions, argue their points and explain themselves clearly.
Head of English Faculty: Sarah Jackson
The English Faculty is comprised of the English and Media departments.
The Faculty has proved itself to be excellent at delivering strong outcomes for our students, with 72.4% of GCSE students achieving a 9-4 grade, and 100% pass rates in A-Level English Literature and L3 Media BTec in the summer of 2018. We will continue to build on this and we aim to enable all students to achieve their full potential.
We are passionate about ensuring that our students develop a love of reading and learning during their time with us. We are an innovative faculty and we continually share ideas and best practice, making certain that we provide students with the best possible chances for success.
