English

The KS3 curriculum has been updated this year to fall in line with the New National Curriculum Objectives ‘to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the written and spoken word, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.’ The curriculum covers the three strands of reading, writing and speaking and listening.

At KS4, pupils are offered GCSE English Language through the AQA examination board. From September 2015, pupils at Spring Brook School will be offered GCSE English Language and GCSE English Literature through the AQA examination board.
