English

Why is the subject important?

Our English curriculum at 一肖一码资料 equips all students with the functional skills needed for later life, whilst nurturing a passion and love of literature from across the world. We work as a team to ensure that our curriculum is tailored and differentiated to meet the needs of our cohort to allow each of our students the opportunity to thrive in English and beyond.

Through the study of English Literature, our students develop a knowledge of and embrace cultural capital through a variety of well-considered texts across the English cannon; students are exposed to a range of contextual backgrounds and momentous historical events. These underpin and explore our core values as a school.

Through the study of English Language, we foster the analytical thinking of our students in order to develop their inquisitive natures which will empower them to criticise the things that they read, see and hear in the modern world. It is our aim to ensure that students have a comprehensive vocabulary to access and articulate challenging ideas. We endeavour to teach students a range of oracy and literacy skills which make them effective communicators across a range of modes and mediums.
