Throughout Key Stage 3 our focus is on consolidating and further developing students’ skills in the three areas of English: reading, writing and speaking and listening.
Their progress is monitored through regular assessments and independent learning. We set core homework to build on literacy skills and foster enjoyment of the subject, and students are supported to become independent learners by a departmental homework club and the school library.
Teaching English in ability groups from Year 7 ensures that all students work at an appropriate pace and are provided with the necessary balance between stretch, challenge, support and encouragement.
A selection of the topics students study at Key Stage 3 is listed below:
