Rationale

Our vision in English for all students is that they leave equipped with an appreciation and respect for the power of language and literature and the confidence and conviction to communicate effectively in a wide range of personal, social and professional settings.

The English faculty at Haslingden High school is a large and hugely successful team of 14 teaching staff, with GCSE and A Level results being of a consistently high standard, and significantly above the national average. The faculty is led by a very experienced Curriculum Leader, with two Assistant Curriculum Leaders, who lead on English language and English literature, respectively.

We follow the Eduqas courses at GCSE, and all students are entered for English language and literature. A Levels in English language and English literature are popular subjects offered at KS5.

Homework is an important means by which students can deepen their learning and improve their understanding of topics studied.  More information can be found here.
