The mission of the English team and our curriculum is to deliver an engaging provision weighted towards critical thought whilst also encouraging creativity and a lifelong love of reading and thinking around big ideas.
The English pathway is an academic English provision that focuses on developing an appreciation of language in all its forms and a love of literature. Students will learn to read for enjoyment and in a critical way. Students will learn to write with fluency and flair in a variety of contexts. Students will learn to listen keenly and speak confidently in a variety of contexts.
Students will aim to demonstrate their understanding through work that demonstrates a passion and control of language. Their books will contain detailed notes and extended writing that explores a variety of texts and contexts. Their assessments will show the ability to express analytical ideas about a range of texts and the ability to construct fluent and entertaining descriptions and narratives.
Alongside the curriculum content outlined by the national curriculum and exam requirements, our provision is also populated with theatre trips, visits and insight from our experienced teaching team.
