The Key Stage 3 English Curriculum aims to build on the skills developed in Key stage 2 whilst introducing a greater level of challenge: in both year 7 & 8 students will study a 19th century novel;  2 Shakespeare plays and a range of quality fiction and non-fiction extracts from spanning across different time periods. Within these units of study, students will continue to develop their retrieval, inference and analytical skills as well as write in a range of styles for different purposes. 


Students at Key Stage 4 study the AQA English Language and English Literature courses. Please follow the link below for further details.
