ENGLISH

INTRODUCTION

English is a subject which gives you the opportunity to develop your knowledge and understanding of great works of literature and your ability to write creatively and argumentatively. During Years 7 – 9, we build our understanding of seminal works of literature, ranging all the way from The Odyssey to William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar to Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations We do not shy away from creating a very secure knowledge bank from which to work later. We also develop our ability to write through reading these texts and aim to secure a sound understanding of the mechanics of successful writing across a range of text types. During Years 10 and 11, we aim to build on the work completed during Key Stage 3 and very deliberately continue to practise the skills required to be successful in our terminal GCSE examinations. In Year 10 we aim every year to attend a live production of Blood Brothers (theatre schedules permitting) and to read as widely across a range of texts as possible.
