English at Shuttleworth encourages students to immerse themselves in literature and manipulate language in creative and inventive ways.

Our Key Stage 3 curriculum is broad and varied, enabling students to discover new worlds, explore exotic locations, step back in time and soak up the wonder of the English language through a variety of prose, plays, and poetry. They are challenged to utilise language for a variety of purposes and audiences. At Key Stage 4 students will hone their skills and begin to approach the GCSE examinations, building upon the solid foundations laid at Key Stage 3. Students develop their appreciation of the nuances of language and explore key literary works in detail, supporting them as they become more creative writers and critical readers, leaving with a love of reading and appreciation of the magic of writing.
