Aims

Our aim is to provide broad access to the skills in Speaking & Listening, Reading and Writing in order to enable our students to play an active and valuable role in society, now and in the future. We aim to provide students with opportunities to study a variety of texts, both fiction and non-fiction, to enable them to interact with and be engaged by these texts as entertainment, but also at a level which enables them to develop skills that will be useful to them within all careers. 

We aim also to develop literacy skills which will enable students to access all areas of the curriculum within school, and to present opportunities through extra curricular activities for the development of the whole person, in a social, moral, cultural as well as academic context.
