Welcome to the English & Media Department
We are a dedicated team of English Language and Literature specialists who are committed to securing outstanding outcomes for all students. Through various roles, our team has a shared responsibility underpinned by a sense of well-being, empowerment and pride to drive progress and achievement in English. We have enthusiasm and passion to inspire curious learners and our vision is to ensure success for all learners, so our students feel happy yet challenged and equipped for life outside of school. Through our high expectations, students are encouraged to engage with learning and have equally high aspirations.
As a department, we have a common approach to securing positive outcomes. Through teaching and learning, all students can expect stimulating and interesting lessons where the emphasis lies in a student-centred approach. We actively encourage our students to take risks to become independent, resilient learners who persevere in their learning. All students regularly receive high-quality verbal and written feedback to provide them with opportunities to address targets to constantly review the work they complete. Our high standards are driven by our students’ thirst for learning and it is our vision to embed this through each key stage of learning.
