English

We want our English curriculum at Malbank to be without limits. We strive to give young people the opportunities, experiences, knowledge and analytical tools to speak, write and read confidently, appropriately, and on their own terms in whatever context they find themselves in. We want them to see the value of language and literature both inside the classroom to allow them to cultivate a curiosity of the world around them and instil a passion for the power of the written word.

Our curriculum is designed to allow all students regardless of background and prior attainment to see the joy in the written word and begin to develop the skills needed to succeed at GCSE and beyond. 

The English department is comprised of a team of dynamic teachers with a wealth of expertise who are enthusiastic, dedicated and caring in their approach. They are focused on supporting the achievement of all our students.
