Students are encouraged to develop an interest in and enjoyment of English, exploring skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening. Students learn to express themselves creatively and to communicate with others confidently. Students are encouraged to become enthusiastic and critical readers of stories, poetry and drama, as well as non-fiction and media texts. They will explore how writers craft texts and use this understanding to choose and adapt what they say and write in different situations.

Students learn individually, in pairs and in groups. We challenge all students to achieve the highest academic standards they can and support this by providing regular next-steps advice, which students are required to respond to.
