English at Key Stage 3

English at Key Stage 3 provides the foundation for skills we use in all forms of communication. In our school we aim to provide as many opportunities for pupils to stretch and challenge their abilities through work in reading, writing and oral activities.

In the classroom we provide a high quality environment for learning with each classroom equipped with interactive ICT facilities as well as core texts studied over the year. Our desire to develop effective communication skills in all pupils demands an approach which balances creative and analytical work as well as engaging pupils with literary texts covering poetry, prose and drama.
