Face challenges, build resilience and achieve mastery
Creating critical thinkers, speakers, readers and writers through living language environments which allow students to face challenges, build resilience and achieve mastery.
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
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
