Curriculum Statement of Intent
The Lyndon School English curriculum is designed to:
- Inspire and enthuse young people about English Language and English Literature
- Treat all students as an individual – personalise learning and create challenging opportunities for all
- Develop, promote and utilise engaging activities to foster a love of learning
All students will leave Lyndon having experienced and enjoyed facets of literature from a broad spectrum of prose, poetry, plays and non-fiction, recognising its power in todays’ society. Texts studied will enable students to explore and examine culture and develop a deeper understanding of the world. All students will leave richer in literacy and have gained an appreciation and understanding of its ability to improve lives.
Our students will be equipped for life after Lyndon with a thorough understanding of reading, writing, speaking and listening; they will garner crucial literacy skills laying the foundation for further study and/or employment.
