The English department is a diverse, enthusiastic and experienced team offering inspirational courses at each key stage. The department’s dedication and commitment to hard-work is key to enhancing the learning of each of our students. We are a large department of sixteen full and part-time staff who all have an active interest in the wider world of literature, including reading and the theatre. We are committed to supporting and encouraging students of all abilities to make their English experience both enjoyable and beneficial. We have a varied and exciting curriculum across the key stages, including a Theme Park project in Y8, a Zoo debate in Y7 and an exploration into the dystopian genre in Y9. Texts studied at GCSE include ‘Macbeth’, ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ and a poetry anthology on conflict. We offer three A Level courses: English Literature, English Language and English Literature and Language combined.
