Curriculum Statement

Why English?


Six great principles of English teaching which reflect our pedagogy:-


  1.  Understanding that the subject is an interconnected body of knowledge - integration across subjects
  2.  Always supported by ambitious text choices - exposure to challenging text and vocabulary
  3.  Places great literature at the heart of every lesson - class novel, subject fiction and non-fiction, whole class reading
  4.  Hinges on subtle and sensitive modelling - key to what great teaching means to us
  5.  Places a great value on words - the best, the most powerful, the most appropriate
  6.  Gives students lots and lots of writing practice - basic skills, incidental writing opportunities, cross-curricular writing
