‘We are committed to sharing with all students our love of the English language and its fantastically rich and diverse literature, whilst empowering them through the development of excellent communication skills.’
In English, we teach students ...
We do this through the exploration of the wonderful range of literary and non-literary texts drawn from across the whole English-speaking world. We actively seek out dynamic and interesting examples of written and spoken communication that students can model their own work on, and we encourage active debate and risk-taking within a classroom ethos of respect, support and safety. We know that it is crucial that all students feel empowered to explore their own responses to literary and media texts, and are properly trained to express their thoughts and reactions appropriately.
