Key Stage 3 English
purpose of English at KS3 is to build upon the skills acquired at KS2 and to
prepare the students for IGCSE English and IGCSE English Literature. We
recognize as a department the differing levels and needs of our students and we
strive to tailor our programme of study to foster inclusivity and enjoyment.
The importance of reading is forefronted, and we use the library actively in
order to give the students ample opportunity to develop their reading
independently as well as through guidance.
The department has worked
collaboratively to produce schemes of work that build upon literacy skills
developed within Key Stage 2, but are also robust and rigorous in content to
prepare the students for the demands of Key Stage 4.
Our classes are designed
to give every student the chance to progress, but also to be supported in their
acquisition of language. We use standardized tests in order to evaluate student
progress, inform teaching and accurately assess. Much of our work is fed
through to the whole school to better provide for our students.
