With challenging classic texts as a springboard, our English pupils will explore some of the best and most brilliant ideas from literature as part of our Castle Mead Canon. Pupils will analyse and appreciate the writer’s art and value their own reading of a text. They will develop a passion for reading and a mastery of their own writing. Their vast knowledge of great stories and complex characters will garner articulate, empathetic and critical scholars, both in written and spoken contexts. Castle Mead English pupils will have ownership over their opinions and will be equipped with the independence, confidence and vocabulary to communicate them.
