About Us

English

Our English curriculum aims to develop holistic skills in reading, writing and speaking & listening  in order to equip pupils with the skills they need to contribute positively to the world around them.

We aim to increase student’s understanding of their cultural and literary heritage, and to develop vocabulary so that students can make sense of society, articulate their feelings and be able to empathise with others.  Students should develop an ability to be critical thinkers and to judge the value and worth of texts in relation to themselves and society as a whole.

Key skills include:

  • vocabulary acquisition and usage in writing and speaking;
  •  identification, analysis and evaluation of techniques at word, sentence and text level in writing, and in speech, through reading and listening.
  • Application of these techniques to craft student’s own writing
  • The ability to be critical readers and understand and interpret a writer’s explicit and implicit meaning.
