The English Department aims to offer a creative and innovative curriculum.
Core units are based on the following areas for each year group in KS3:
Reading, Writing, Media, Speaking and Listening, Shakespeare.
Students at KS3 have three one hour lessons a week, plus one hour of literacy or Latin per fortnight for our weakest or strongest groups respectively. Every lesson starts with silent reading.
Year 7 students complete their homework in differentiated Homework Booklets. Students of Mark Aptitude are also encouraged to complete the half-termly extended projects on VLE.
