High standards, high expectations, high aspirations


The English Department is composed of a team of subject specialists who are fully qualified to teach English from Year 7-13. English lessons are taught in a suite of seven specialist rooms with access to a central office and resource area. The most up-to-date books, resources and ICT are used to actively engage students.

At KS3 every pupil has access to a wide range of texts and genres. Our English curriculum is broad and challenging and texts range from Chaucer’s time to the present day.  We invest in new KS3 texts each year, the most recent being Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo in Year 7, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne in Year 8 and Bog Child by Siobhan Dowd in Year 9.
