Enriching Learning

The English Department works alongside the Drama Department and Learning Resource Base (LRB) to offer a range of enrichment opportunities for students:

• The department invites poets and authors into school to hold writing workshops with specific groups of children.
• The department offers students the chance to see plays or novels that they are studying in performance in order to give them a deeper understanding of characterisation and themes.
• The department offers students the chance to get involved in ‘Youth Speaks’, a local speaking and listening competition.
• We take students into the LRB on a regular basis to promote independent reading habits.
• All students in Year Seven are given a free ‘Book Buzz’ book of their choice to promote independence in reading.
