Every student is encouraged and aided to achieve their full potential in English, in recognition that literacy and language skills underpin all employability skills.
Key Stage 5 English is an extension of skills that students have developed in Key Stage 4 and is personalised for specific needs and past achievements.
Literacy skills will be taught as an integral part of topic work within other curriculum areas and in a designated Literacy lesson delivered by a subject specialist.
Courses that may be offered:
- GCSE English Language
- English Functional Skills Level 1/2
Other options could be available dependent on individual students’ aspirations and abilities.
