Introduction to English at Harris Academy Morden
Underpinning all English study is the understanding of ideas, methods and context, from Year 7 through to Year 11. We have been keen to ensure that the curriculum and assessment cycle leads to progression, with students gaining knowledge and honing skills over their time, rather than repeating the same tasks year after year. The overall intention therefore of our curriculum offer is a broad range of material that gives students the knowledge and teaches them the history of English Literature as well, as fostering their ability in using English as a tool for communication in the areas of reading, writing and speaking and listening. We are confident our provision ensures students cultivate their understanding of these key concepts and build the skills required for not only future English study, but also across all subjects.
