KS3 English: Setted by English ability, students experience objective led and skills based learning through the delivery of common and differentiated schemes of work which enable learners to progress appropriately across the core skills of Speaking & Listening, Reading and Writing.  We are committed to delivering active learning where students take ownership of their learning and progress and are supported by enthusiastic and skilled English teachers.

KS4 English: Learning and progress continues in sets with the focus still on developing active and engaged learners who have a passion for exploring language through the reading of Literature as well as the development of their own writing and speaking styles.  Students in Y10 and Y11 study the WJEC specifications GCSE English Language and GCSE English Literature.  Most students will complete GCSE English Language in January of Y11 and GCSE English Literature in June of Y11.  Some students will move in Year 11 across to the GCSE English qualification.
