‘To enrich understanding and develop interpretation’
Each year we ensure a wide range of texts are being taught. Building on the skills and abilities of Year 6, in Year 7 we look at challenging fiction and non-fiction to engage and stimulate our learners. In Year 8, a variety of thought provoking texts ensure skills and abilities are secured and developed. In Year 9, we challenge and stretch every learner with texts to ignite their interest in the world around them, the world before them and the world after them.
Every student studies for AQA GCSE English Language and AQA GCSE English Literature.
