Overview

Studying English will allow students to become proficient in reading, writing, speaking and listening. All of which are needed in the wider world and work life.  Students will also gain valuable skills that will allow them to communicate effectively in a number of ways.

KS3:All three year groups in KS3 follow a curriculum path which prepares them for their GCSE’s. Each half-term has a scheme of work that culminates in an assessment in both reading and writing. Work is based on extracts from both fiction and non-fiction spread across  the centuries.

GCSE: These two year groups are following different paths. Year 11 will take part in a series of mock exams in October, December and February. Booster/support sessions are available on Thursdays after school. There will be a speaking and listening exam during the Spring Term.
