The English Department

We are a dedicated, creative and highly successful team of eight subject specialists; our summer 2017 progress 8 score of +0.76 places us in the top 9% of all schools nationally, with over 90% of our students gaining a GCSE grade 4 or higher in English. The department occupies six full sized classrooms plus seminar rooms for smaller groups, all equipped with PCs and projectors. We share a workroom, which becomes a place for the team to congregate during breaks, fostering an extremely supportive and friendly atmosphere. Several of the English staff are leaders in whole school Teaching and Learning development, and our culture of sharing ideas and strategies leads to innovative and dynamic teaching across the team. 

In Key Stage 3, all students follow a varied English curriculum, balancing different skills, genres and eras. Year 9 is our GCSE preparation year, in which skills for the Key Stage 4 curriculum are introduced, then all students study both AQA English Language and AQA English Literature GCSE courses in Years 10 and 11. As a team we are looking to continually deepen our understanding of the new GCSEs and to improve our delivery of content through sharing best practice, not least by drawing on the expertise of AQA examiners within the department.  Our curriculum is carefully structured and well-resourced, yet often allows staff freedom to follow their passions and preferences. We make full and creative use of students’ iPads to enhance their learning.
