English Curriculum Intent

Our English Curriculum is designed to ensure scholars explore the highest quality Literature in order to generate the highest quality personal response and debate. Our journey of powerful Literature is underpinned by a knowledge of authorial aims and how these ideals are realised. We encourage scholars to think critically about Literature and understand texts as constructions and mirrors reflecting the worlds in which they were written.

As Scholars progress through each Achievement Cycle they will experience an integrated approach by learning to apply Language skills to Literature content. We begin our journey in Achievement Cycle One which is dedicated to the study of plays and poetry. We move on to the power of storytelling through the focus of a novel in Achievement Cycle Two, leading on to a celebration of Shakespeare’s tragedies in Achievement Cycle Three. We complete our journey with Achievement Cycle Four concentrating on Culture and Heritage, charting a range of writers’ crafts and authorial aims.

Within the texts we’ve chosen scholars encounter ambitious vocabulary that allows them to express and articulate their thoughts and personal responses. We encourage the scholars to discover the space between the lines and independently step into the world beyond the text. Only then can we hope to create future writers, illustrators and designers for the world beyond the classroom.
