Statement of Intent

Our aim is to develop students’ confidence, imagination and skills in the three main components of reading, writing and spoken communication*. Our curriculum will provide opportunities for pupils to communicate, compose and comprehend English Language and English Literature in a wide variety of forms. Our core purpose is to foster a love of literature and language, encouraging students to read widely and independently. We aim to make our students into discerning, critical readers whose analytical skills will allow them to interpret the ever more complex linguistic world around them. Our curriculum enables students to experience a range of contemporary and literary heritage prose, poetry and drama from our culture and different cultures around the globe, whilst also aiming to inspire students to express themselves imaginatively, appropriately and effectively.

*Spoken Communication is embedded throughout the English Curriculum.
