We believe English is fundamental in securing success across the curriculum. In addition to teaching key literacy, reading and writing skills, we encourage pupils to think for themselves and express their ideas effectively. We also believe that reading is intrinsic to all academic success and we encourage the children to read as often as they can.
Nearly every class has an English lesson and a reading period at least once a day. The English Department works very closely with our Librarian, running a wide range of exciting events across the year. Annual highlights include: World Book Day celebrations, House Spelling Bee, the Awesome Book Awards and termly visits from our Patron of Reading.For more detailed information about the English curriculum, please visit our website
