‘Love each other as I have loved you.’ (John 13, v 34-35)


The study of English is fundamental to our personal growth. The knowledge that we gain from exposure to texts drawn from a range of genres, cultures, perspectives and time periods helps us broaden our understanding of the world, promoting curiosity, opinions and questions from our pupils.

Our vision is to provide all students with opportunities to achieve and excel through an ambitious, stimulating and coherently planned curriculum. Our curriculum is inclusive of all students and closely follows the National Curriculum Programmes of Study in English for Key Stage 2 and 3. It is delivered by passionate, inspiring adults who insist upon high standards of presentation, effort, behaviour and promote positive attitudes towards learning.

As we aim to develop both skills and knowledge, we place careful consideration on sequencing learning to ensure it becomes embedded in the long term memory.
In addition, we value English as an artistic subject to be celebrated and enjoyed. As such, we place high importance on providing rich extra-curricular opportunities  and whole school events for our pupils that promote creativity through writing, drama, debate and inspire a love of reading.
