Introduction and ethos of subject

The English Faculty are a passionate team of individuals who combine their vast range of experiences to offer an engaging and enriching curriculum. As a team we are dedicated to enriching the lives of the students in our care and rigorously ensure lessons spark interest, develop knowledge and challenge students to achieve their full potential.

English, as a subject, remains at the heart of all learning.


Our focus in KS3 is on building on the skills students have already learnt at primary school and developing them into those that are needed for GCSE study. This includes reading and studying poetry, novels and Shakespeare plays, as well as practising their writing skills.
