Poynton High School English Department is a vibrant and highly successful curriculum area, staffed by a teaching team of twelve subject specialists.

From Years 7 to 13, students follow a carefully constructed programme of study which not only allows access to the highest levels of academic achievement but also ensures that every student develops the rich variety of functional English skills demanded by the ‘real world’. The key elements of reading and writing, speaking and listening and literary analysis are at the heart of all English lessons.

The department works hard to create a positive learning environment, for all students, through imaginative lesson planning and the use of a diverse range of learning activities. The students’ classroom experience is enhanced by extra-curricular groups such as our reading, creative writing and theatre clubs, along with school visits by leading children's authors.

Information about the curriculum in each Key Stage can be found in the links at the left and an overview of the Curriculum can be found below.
