English

 The KS3 English curriculum at Hagley aims to challenge pupils to reach their full potential, inspiring intellectual curiosity and a passion for both the written and spoken word. Our pupils will be equipped with the skills to become imaginative and empathetic pupils of English; they will develop the resilience to access a variety of different texts and be empowered with ambitious and academic vocabulary to explore perceptive ideas.

Throughout each year at KS3, pupils will study a prose text, poetry and Shakespeare. They will also look at a range of extracts, both fiction and non-fiction texts, from the 19th century through to the 21st century. Pupils will also work on their own writing skills producing their own creative writing and transactional writing pieces.

Throughout each year, pupils will be assessed in a levelled assessment for each topic. All assessments are linked to a key skill at GCSE.  

At the end of each year pupils will sit an end of year exam.
