English (Key Stage 3)

Our English curriculum develops all students’ ability to: read, decode and explore meaning across a range of literary text types and genres; reflect on the world around them by studying fiction/ non-fiction that promotes British values and provides a rich understanding of local, cultural and historical contexts; think creatively and have the literacy skills and contextual knowledge, as writers, to thoughtfully craft their ideas in a clear, convincing way; discuss and share ideas in academic, formal standard English.
