Key Stage 3

In English lessons, students expand upon the skills in reading, writing and discussion acquired in Key Stage 2.  They will also develop their understanding of texts in performance and, in the Autumn Term, will take part in the annual year 7 Poetry Competition.  Additionally, students will extend writing skills to improve the content and length as well as writing for different audiences and purposes.  Furthermore, they will learn more about  how to use punctuation correctly in order to help the reader make sense of what they have written and develop their spellings.  In the summer term, there is an opportunity for year 7 students to visit The Globe Theatre and undertake workshops with members of the Royal Shakespeare Company.
