Welcome to English


The overarching aim for English is to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.

Our English curriculum follows a mastery approach whereby content is covered in depth to ensure that our students have the tools to succeed in both SATs and GCSEs.

The KS2 and KS3 English Department is staffed with highly skilled Middle Leaders and Senior Leaders, who specialise in a range of key stages, with years of experience in teaching English Language and Literature at GCSE and A-level prior to joining our team.

Staff take pride in their own continual professional development to ensure that consistent provision is made for our more able students and that subject knowledge is of the highest standard, thus breeding a culture of academia and success.

Reading and writing are at the heart of the English curriculum. The below documents detail how reading and writing are delivered at Walton Priory Middle School, including details of how we support all learners to achieve their potential.
