The English Department
English at Barlby High School is an exciting and innovative department within the Communication Faculty. The department work closely with drama and MFL to share best practice and enjoy a classroom each in a dedicated English block. As a team we all look to improve and develop our practice through training and CPD, encouraging staff to follow their passion for their subject specialism. The department is also committed to promoting reading across the school and are developing several initiatives to improve our students’ vocabulary skills and celebrate reading for pleasure.
In Key Stage Three, students are encouraged to develop a love of literature while learning to create interesting and thought-provoking writing themselves. Students also prepare for GCSE by practising and honing inference and deduction skills in reading activities. Students at Key Stage Four follow the AQA English language and literature 8700 and 8702 specifications.
A broad selection of quality texts and resources are carefully selected to engage students in the exploration of language, structure and form, and teachers take risks to challenge students’ perceptions. Lessons involve the study of both modern and classic literature, together with non-fiction texts to give students a variety of inspiration.
Teachers place much emphasis on developing and encouraging students in oracy skills, with the view to encouraging and enhancing students’ abilities and confidence in all subjects. Lessons involve aspects of drama, presentations and debate to ready students for future study and employment.
