KS3 English

The purpose of KS3 English is to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.  

English lessons will equip pupils with the ability to; read easily, fluently and with a good understanding, develop the habit of reading widely and often for both pleasure and information, acquire a wide vocabulary assisted by Archway’s ‘Word of the Day’ which is consistently highlighted and promoted in each lesson across the school.  Students are encouraged and taught to acquire an understanding of grammar and knowledge of linguistic conventions for reading, writing and spoken language.  Moreover, students are required to write clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style in and for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences.  Finally, students are encouraged to use discussion in order to learn and teachers facilitate lessons in order to develop a student’s ability and confidence in this area.

KS4 English

The purpose of KS4 English is to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment. 

The KS4 English curriculum requires students to study for two exams; English Language and English Literature.  At Archway, students follow the AQA programmes of study and in most cases, students are required to study towards their GCSE in English Language.  Where it is deemed a student is academically able, they will sit a GCSE in English Literature enabling them to gain two GCSE’s in English. 

AQA English Language:

Students are required to sit two papers for this GCSE:

  • Paper 1 (Fiction) and Paper 2 (Non Fiction).

The assessments have been designed to inspire and motivate students, providing appropriate stretch and challenge whilst ensuring that the assessment and texts are accessible to the full range of students and their abilities.  The specification will enable students to develop the skills they need to read, understand and analyse a wide range of different texts covering the 19th, 20th and 21st century time periods as well as to write clearly, coherently and accurately using a range of vocabulary and sentence structure.

AQA English Literature:

Students are required to sit two papers for this GCSE

  • Paper 1 (Shakespeare and the 19th Century novel) and Paper 2 (Modern texts and Poetry)

In studying the set texts students have the opportunity to develop skills in; reading comprehension and reading critically, literal and inferential comprehension, evaluation of a writer’s choice of vocabulary, grammatical and structural features, comparing texts and writing effectively about literature for a range of purposes.
