What the school offers its staff

The English Department is a highly successful and mutually supportive team of seven specialist staff. We follow the Co-Headteachers’ model of leadership and have two Co-Heads of English, Stephen Webb and Ruth Loxley.

Our aim is to ensure that our curriculum caters for all levels of achievement to increase the confidence of individuals and foster an enthusiasm for the subject. We pride ourselves on having high expectations of our pupils. Pupils are taught in mixed ability groups with each group being taught for eight hours per fortnight in KS3 and nine hours per fortnight in KS4.

Reading is a key focus of the school and is spearheaded by the English Department. All of our students are expected to read widely outside of school. Our lessons take place in eight well-equipped classrooms. We have access to a well-developed resources area; the use of the library; a computer media suite; and other ICT facilities.

We are forward-thinking, enthusiastic and committed; we are all reflective practitioners and strive every year to improve our quality-first teaching.
