English is taught throughout the 11 - 18 age range. We are an enthusiastic, pedagogically thriving team who enjoy results significantly above the national average at all Key Stages. Our KS3 curriculum is exciting and creative and follows the literary cannon chronologically offering breadth and diversity of textual study. All groups in KS3 are mixed ability. KS4 classes are set and we follow the AQA syllabi for both Language and Literature. We are also passionate about the 'Step Up to English' qualification introduced so that all of the students in our care are equipped for life beyond school. English is extremely popular at A-level and we offer both AQA English Language and AQA English Literature alongside excellent extra-curricular opportunities.
