Welcome to Chaigeley School

English KS3

English is at the core of understanding the world and creating and building relationships with others. It allows us to be empathetic and to be able to communicate clearly and effectively; it also enables us to be creative and delicately craft writing like pieces of art.

 

Our English department promotes a love of reading, encourages creativity and imaginative and purposeful writing in a wide range of forms and genres. GCSE literature texts such as ‘A Christmas Carol’ and ‘Blood Brothers’ will be read in order to help understand the world around us; it will build critical thinking skills and it helps to address human nature and conditions that affect all people. Students will enjoy a varied curriculum, encompassing plays, non-fiction, and narrative writing as well as a wide range of novels and poetry from different eras and cultures.

 

Students in year 9 and 10 will follow the Edexcel Entry Level certificate and functional skills in English and this will lead on to year 11 completing WJEC English Language GCSE 1-9 and/or AQA English Literature GCSE 1-9.
