The English Faculty design and prepare units of work for BGE and the National courses. The courses are designed for effective progression within the BGE and from BGE to the National courses. We are committed to encouraging a lifelong love of reading in partnership with our school librarian Mrs. C. Mitchell and we reward and promote progression with our Reading Awards scheme in BGE and with careful text selection for National courses. The faculty offer Media at N4, N5 and Higher with a new set of techniques to add to the core skills taught in English. Close links with ASN allow us to meet all learners’ needs and develop our Continual Professional Learning through collaboration in developing differentiated materials and supporting pupils in class. We work to develop the core skills of reading, writing, listening and talking with our pupils. Our commitment to improving literacy skills for all students stems from the desire to equip and enable them to maximise their potential, to promote lifelong learning and to progress from school, with confidence.
