We wish to ensure the highest level of achievement for each student and enable them to work independently and as part of a team in a wide variety of activities by creating an atmosphere where students give their very best. We encourage students to challenge and question texts and ideas, to consider alternative points of view and arrive at their own conclusion. Students are supported through personalised planning, marking and tracking to ensure every student succeeds.
The study of English covers texts, language and ideas from several hundred years ago right up to breaking news. Students enjoy opportunities to comment on a range of texts from different ages, cultures and genres, making links between them and exploring how English has evolved. Creativity is encouraged and students feel confident to experiment and expand their own writing experiences.
