Key Stage 3
Lessons aim to engage students and develop skills in reading, writing and speaking and listening. This is achieved by covering not only written and spoken language, but also encompassing moving image.
We cover a variety of texts such as ‘Romeo and Juliet,’ ‘Stormbreaker,’ and ‘The Hunger Games.’
Key Stage 4
Lessons equip students with essential skills required for communication and is therefore beneficial for all further study and career choices. All Key Stage 4 pupils have the opportunity to follow the GCSE programmes of study.
We encourage our students in Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 to exceed their targets by getting involved in extra-curricular activities such as the Whole School Extended Writing Competition that takes place monthly; International Literacy Days; Focused Interventions, as well as cinematic and theatre days that link to the themes being covered in the classroom.
Students also have the opportunity to stay after school on a Monday and get involved in Film Club where they can be a part of something fun, creative and sociable.
