To discover more about English teaching at The Queen's School please see the reading, phonics and writing zones on our website. 

Through the principles and processes of English teaching we aim to inspire pupils to:

  • enjoy the subject and study it with a sense of achievement
  • understand how language works by looking at its patterns, structures and origins
  • to know grammar and punctuation terms in order to explain how language works
  • be able to use this knowledge to choose and adapt what they say and write in different situations
  • communicate with others effectively
  • learn to be enthusiastic and critical readers of stories, poetry and drama as well as
    non-fiction and media texts
  • use their skills with confidence and understanding in real life situations
  • develop the ability to look critically at their work, edit and improve it
  • achieve a high standard in English and gain a secure foundation of knowledge, skills and concepts as set out in our English Policy
