English Language, Literature and Drama

Across the curriculum we provide our pupils with the opportunity to experience a wealth of Literature, honing their ability to infer meaning and develop their understanding of the social and historical contexts. Within English Language and Media , we explore texts relating to the everyday world, encouraging our pupils to decode meaning and enhance their vital life skills through speaking and listening. Drama is embedded within our schemes of learning to foster team work, collaboration and negotiation skills. Ultimately, we strive for the best in everyone.

Years 7 and 8

All of our Schemes of Learning are designed to develop crucial GCSE skills and provide clear progression routes through to Key Stage 5. We assess using APP each half term to ensure swift intervention.
