English - UCAS Code 2J4W

English is for life. It’s the backbone of every other subject studied within the SCITT. As such, English lessons take learners through themes and topics that are relevant to life and to the wider world.  English  feeds their creativity and imagination. The department is fully staffed by a diverse range of subject specialists that guarantee that pupils will encounter big and exciting experiences and also to have those quiet moments to allow their thoughts to hit the page. Due to the strength of the curriculum and the commitment of the English staff, our pupils achieve consistently impressive grades in both English Language and English Literature. Our pupils make outstanding progress and genuinely enjoy their lessons. We are a supportive, experienced and rigorous English department with an excellent track record in transforming English graduates into English teachers, fully prepared to join this demanding profession.
