The English department is a team of 11 staff, 9 full time and 2 part time. We are a young, enthusiastic team who are committed to offering students a wide range of methods to fully engage students across all Key Stages. At the heart of everything we do is to instil a love and appreciation for all types of English – from literature to creative writing, modern communications to speaking and listening, our aim is for students to explore and appreciate English for the wide topic that it is in today’s society, whilst realising that wherever you go, English will always be a part of you.
Half term already?! Time flies when you're having fun. Enjoy people!
What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than celebrating all the wonderful, loving relationships in our GCSE texts: Macbeth and Lady - oh. Macduff and Lady - ah. Sheila Birling and Ger - hmm. Scrooge and - oops. Let's try A-Lev... Never mind.
Oh, the weather outside is frightful, But the fire is so delightful, And since we've no place to go, KS3 - read a book Y10 - reread 'Macbeth' Y11 - revise/ Pixl Lit Y12 - read 'Dracula' and 'Beloved' Y13 - revise. Much better lyrics.
To the Y12 retake students getting their results tomorrow - the absolute best of luck!
Let's get this right... 'Captain Marvel' in March. 'Game of Thrones' in April. 'Avengers: Endgame' in April. 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' in July. What a time to be alive.
