A Brief Introduction to the English Department

englishimage

The English curriculum at TPS covers a range of ambitious texts to broaden horizons, promote reflection, and develop the reader. Texts at KS3 include Greek mythology, George Orwell's Animal Farm, Shakespeare's Othello and Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist, as well as poetry from poets such as William Blake, Carol Ann Duffy and John Agard. The elements of excellence in reading, analysis and constructing essays are explicitly taught and practised throughout the curriculum, with the aim that all students leave school having studied some of the most powerful texts in English literature, with the ability to analyse, appreciate and interpret a great many more, and with the skills to be excellent writers in any area they choose.
