The vision of the English faculty is to equip all students with an appreciation for the written and spoken word.  We aim to encourage a love of reading which lasts into adulthood.  We want our students to be confident with their use of the English language so that they can write creatively and with fluency and speak in public with confidence.  Our aim is to produce critical readers who have the confidence to question and analyse the reading material in order to deepen their understanding.  We want them to be able to debate ideas with their peers with confidence and be able to support their opinions with judicious reference to the texts they have studied.  

Our curriculum is varied and diverse and encompasses the wide range of Literature available from Ancient Tales, Shakespeare, Romantic poetry, poetry from other cultures, right through to modern novels and plays. We want students to experience the beauty and richness of language in many forms and believe that our curriculum offers this. 

Students in KS4 study for two GCSEs; English Language and English Literature.  We also offer AQA A Level English Literature for post 16 students.  This is a very popular A level course and is highly regarded by universities.
