English Language and Literature

English is vital for communicating with others in school and in the wider world, and is fundamental to learning in all curriculum subjects. Through the study of English our students develop the speaking, listening, reading and writing skills that they will need to participate in society and employment. Furthermore, they explore how to express themselves creatively and imaginatively and learn how to communicate with others confidently and effectively.

Looking at the patterns, structures, origins and conventions of English helps us understand how language works. Armed with this understanding, students can choose and adapt what they say and write in different situations, as well as appreciate and interpret the choices made by other writers and speakers.

By encouraging our students to read a wide range of books and texts that reflect the experiences of people from many countries and times, they will develop a sense of cultural identity and become enthusiastic and critical readers of stories, poetry and drama, as well as non-fiction and media texts. They gain access to a world of knowledge and hopefully lay the foundation for a life-long love of reading.

At Haygrove School students are taught in mixed ability tutor groups for Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 and 9).

English Intervention 

Where additional support is required, students, particularly in Year 7, recieve additional intervention via small group or one-to-one sessions. 

We run a number of activities aimed at building confidence in English such as the Year 7 Spelling Bee and the Year 8 Debating competition. Our students also enter, and frequently are awarded certificates and prizes, in the local Brunner Prize Creative Writing competition held by Richard Huish Sixth Form College.

Trips to the theatre, both locally and nationally, are organised as part of our whole school Enrichment programme and this year we are planning on taking Year 7 students to visit the Harry Potter Studios in London.
