English Key Stage 3 & 4
There are four separate curriculum areas in English:
grammar and vocabulary
English is usually taught in ability sets in KS3. The curriculum will be the same, but higher sets will be working at a higher level, while lower sets will be given more support.
The main aim of the English curriculum 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 reading for enjoyment across a wide range of styles and genres.
