The English department is housed in a suite of five, modern, well-equipped rooms. In addition, students have access to ICT facilities in our brand new English ICT suite. Our department is characterised by a strong sense of collaboration and enthusiasm for our subject and our students. We actively encourage students to feel part of our curriculum development and we respect their constructive views and perceptions of our delivery and teaching. Our main aim is to achieve the highest possible standards for all our students. The department caters for all abilities; with accelerated schemes of learning to challenge our more able students and differentiated work to support those with additional needs. We understand that good English skills are vital to access the whole school curriculum. We work closely with the Learning Support Unit to ensure that pupils get further Literacy support and phonics (spelling) when required. We want our students to enjoy their work and we strive to ensure that our curriculum offers a rich and diverse range of learning experiences. After school, English clubs are a popular choice at the end of a busy day.
