English - Introduction

English - Introduction

In English, our main aim is to enable students to read, write, speak and listen effectively, gaining understanding of and control over language.  We want our students to enjoy reading, to be confident and creative writers and to be able to express themselves orally. 

The English Department has many initiatives to encourage students to develop these important skills. These include:

  • Accelerated reader and Library lessons where students select books within a reading range and within their interest
  • Poetry reading for the School Christmas Concert
  • Spelling Bee competition
  • Public speaking Competitions
  • Theatre trips
  • GCSE revision sessions
  • Power breakfasts - revision sessions for selected students preceding their final GCSE examinations
  • Small reading groups to help improve fluency in year 7 and 8
