Wessex Learning Trust
Our Vision: All students at Nailsea will achieve or exceed national progress expectations in English, with a high proportion going on to exceed expectations in the Sixth Form. They will leave with humane, reasoned values, and a love of English, fostered through a rich and challenging curriculum.
We will work to ensure our curriculum is stimulating, well-taught and leads to outstanding outcomes for all students, regardless of external factors.
During Years 7, 8 and 9 students have seven hours of English lessons a fortnight. Throughout the year, students study five different units that develop their writing and reading skills and once a fortnight, students spend time in the Library, where we aim to foster a love of independent reading. We also have dedicated skills lessons where students continue to practise the key skills needed to succeed in English. Our focus throughout Key Stage 3 is to encourage students’ enjoyment of the subject, whilst also equipping them with the skills they need to succeed in the years to come.
