GCSE English Language
The aim of the English department is to identify topics that engage and enthuse students. All students at KS4 follow detailed, differentiated Schemes of Work which are continually reviewed by the department. Throughout KS4, students will develop the ability to communicate clearly, accurately and effectively when speaking and writing. They learn how to use a wide range of vocabulary, and the correct grammar, spelling and punctuation. Formative and summative assessments form the assessment focuses which are used to map individual progress. Our creative approach to lessons allows students to develop a personal style and a confidence in their own ideas and responses. The English department deliver WJEC Edquas (9-1) GCSE in English Language.
All Year 9/10 students follow a one year plan. This plan incorporates the assessment objectives clearly outlined in the specification and in preparation for the Year 11 GCSE one year. KS3/4 students are presented with clearly defined differentiated tasks to suit their ability.
