The English & Media Faculty has a team of highly qualified specialist teachers of English and Media. There is a Faculty Leader and a number of other colleagues with responsibility for leading aspects of the English & Media curriculum.
In English, at Key Stage 3 and 4 all students have 6 or 7 hours of English per fortnight. There is mixed ability teaching in Year 7 and Year 8 and then setting from Year 9 upwards. GCSE results are significantly above the national average
with a high proportion of students routinely achieving A and A* grades.
GCSE Media Studies has been offered in recent years as an additional option in Year 10 and has produced outstanding results.
English & Media are both offered at Key Stage 5. Braintree Sixth Form has a Subject Group Leader responsible for English & Media. A broad range of both AS/A2 and International Baccalaureate courses can be studied.
