Welcome to English at Appleton Academy! We are very excited to meet you all and we hope that you will enjoy your English lessons as much as we know we will enjoy teaching you. Over the next 5 years as English scholars at Appleton you will:
acquire a love of reading through a rich, thematically diverse curriculum
develop the skills you need to succeed in the classroom and in your lives beyond school
explore our colourful curriculum which interweaves a range of perspectives across different historical, social and political contexts to broaden your understanding of your place in the world around you
understand the importance of oracy and critical discussion which will challenge you to become independent thinkers and allow you to be confident in finding your own voice in the safe and nurturing environment of the English classroom
be exposed to a range of engaging texts about which you will write with creativity, ambition and flair
become happy, creative and successful students who feel safe to take risks and to ask for help to ensure you can be your best in every lesson.
