关键阶段3

In KS3 英语 is divided into four areas of study: Reading; Writing; Language; Speaking and Listening.

During Year 7 we aim to build upon the skills which students have acquired throughout KS2. The course begins with the study of a novel and a range of creative and literary tasks will be based upon the book. We place considerable emphasis on encouraging our students to read: an additional two novels will be studied during the year; regular reading homework will be set; library visits will be made and the completion of reading diaries is encouraged.

8年, the course also begins with an in-depth study of a novel, with developing emphasis on literary analysis. As in Year 7, up to two other novels will be issued during the year and a unit on 作者的工艺 will examine the short story and narrative techniques. Links with the School 图书馆 are still closely maintained, reinforcing the importance and value of reading. 学生 complete a research project on Shakespeare, 调查他的生活, works and the practices of the Elizabethan theatre. 他们还会探索 《云顶集团网站app下载》.

在年9, we aim to equip our students with the necessary skills to embark successfully on their GCSE courses in 英语语言 and Literature.

关键阶段4

英语 and 英国文学 are core subjects in Years 10 -11, leading to two GCSE subject awards. Formal specifications for the new courses have yet to be issued by the Board. The key changes are that the courses are now linear; and that coursework has been replaced by controlled assessment.

We have two principal aims:

  • to develop your confidence and skills to enable you to express yourself clearly and concisely in a variety of forms for any given audience.
  • to provide you with the means to discuss, explore and respond to a range of texts: novels, 戏剧, 诗歌, media and other prose forms.
