Key Stage 3
At KS3, students work in mixed ability groups following a lively, engaging and challenging course. We develop the skills of reading, writing and speaking and listening and nurture students’ appreciation of a wide range of classic and contemporary literature.

Our aim is to kindle a passion for English whilst laying the foundations for a successful study of GCSE at KS4.

Key Stage 4
Students follow the WJEC syllabus for English Language and English Literature GCSE. Both GCSEs offer a variety of texts for study – novels, plays and poetry – each of which presents a range of themes and ideas to provoke interest and discussion amongst the students.

We offer theatre visits and actively collaborate with outside theatre companies to enable students to experience texts ‘live’.

There is a strong emphasis on students being able to read and write to a high standard, as well as feel confident in speaking and listening situations.
