About our English curriculum
English is a central subject in the curriculum at RGS, and we aim to develop our pupils’ enjoyment of Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening, knowing that these skills are essential for educational development as well as being supremely worthwhile in themselves.
English lessons aim to be stimulating, and engaging, but also, we hope fun. We expect pupils to be involved as active participants. Group work, discussion, shared reading and writing, drama and debate, give everyone scope to develop the confidence that will enable progress in skills of expression and appreciation within the supportive environment of English lessons.
