English is the medium in which we think and communicate – it is at the heart of everything we do. The literacy skills which we develop in the subject are essential tools, enabling full access to every single part of the school’s curriculum and equipping children for their life after school as well. And the study of English has much more to contribute even than this – it is chock-full of the ideas and issues which guide and support children’s personal development, be it morally, socially or spiritually.
We all know this; and at UVHS we are proud of our part in every single child’s journey, and fired with the responsibility that we have for helping each of those pupils to achieve their potential.
But English is also fun! It is creative, inspirational, imaginative and rewarding. It is serious sometimes, and funny at others. It is dramatic. It is about who we are. In English, pupils’ work should be all of these things, and that is our ultimate aim: we want you to get as far as you can – and enjoy the journey!
