Pupils study the correct rules of spelling, punctuation and grammar for one hour a week. They study the history of English language and literature, learning about how the language has developed and looking at some of the great writers in English. There are five to seven one-hour English lessons per week. Pupils with low reading ages follow an intensive programme of synthetic phonics in Year 7. We also run additional after-school reading support for our weakest readers.
