Aims of the subject:  

English is vital for communication in learning and life.

The study of English provides a pathway to a critical understanding and enjoyment of the rich diversity of written texts. Through the investigation of the way the language operates, we begin to have a sense of our own cultural identity. Pupils will develop their skills in the following key areas:

  • Speaking and listening – including drama, discussion and presentation;
  • Reading – including fiction / non-fiction and considering the author’s craft,
  • Writing – generating ideas, planning, drafting, shaping language for effect
  • Language - exploring and analysing language structure and variation
