English

English is the gateway to not only learning about the past but also to expanding one’s knowledge and understanding of the world and our place within it.

The English curriculum at Harris City Academy Crystal Palace aims to equip all students with an understanding of the importance of literature and provide literacy skills that will enable all to achieve, regardless of ability or background, as this will allow students to be successful in their future endeavours.

When students arrive in Year 7, they will commence on a journey that will broaden and deepen their understanding of the wider world, and their place in it, through literature and non-fiction texts. 

The texts that they will discover will:

  • challenge their perspectives
  • enable them to explore and appreciate diversity
  • delve into a variety of issues and themes that are relevant to their lives and appreciate where we have come from
  • and allow them to understand different genres and their place within the literary timeline. 

Subsequently, students will be able to engage with controversial issues with sensitivity and connect critically as writers. They will master skills that will produce confident and effective communicators - writers who can emphatically and critically respond to texts and readers who can appreciate the value of literature as a reflection of our world but also an inspiration for life and their future careers. 

Students will have high standards of themselves and be proud of the work that they complete. They will be curious and active learners so that they can apply their learning to different texts and make links between English and other subjects.
