Welcome to English
English encompasses three main areas of study:
- Speaking & Listening
Our schemes of work are designed to give pupils the opportunity to develop vital skills needed to succeed in these three assessment areas, and the wider world outside of the classroom. Our assessments and schemes of work are informed by National Curriculum guidelines and develop essential transferable skills. English, as a core subject, is recognised as a fundamentally important area of study. We in the department encourage our students to recognise the crucial impact of communication, written or spoken, for themselves and their future, through focused, creative and inspiring teaching and learning. Pupils are encouraged to consider the effects of language and an appreciation of alternative perspectives through a vast range of texts. Most crucially, we aim to inspire pupils to express themselves creatively, appropriately and effectively by using the rich and diverse English language.
