We aim to share our love of language and literature and inspire all students to develop their creative, analytical and communication skills to become confident readers, writers and speakers.

What will your child learn in our subject?

Students will experience challenging and engaging lessons that are tailored to their learning style needs. Students will gain essential skills within reading, writing and speaking and listening which will enable them to make the progress they need throughout their school lives to prepare them for the ever-changing working world in which we live.

Extra-Curricular Activities and Trips:

We ensure that students are given the opportunity to visit the theatre at least once a year and last year offered trips to see: War Horse; Woman In Black; Charlie and The Chocolate Factory; Much Ado About Nothing; Frankenstein; Macbeth; Simon Armitage Poetry Performance; BBC Studios trip; A View From The Bridge. We also invited in Shaking- Up-Shakespeare to perform Romeo and Juliet for Year 7 and Macbeth for Year 10.

We have already rebooked Shaking-Up –Shakespeare for further events this year and another theatre company to work with Year 10 on Blood Brothers. We are planning trips to see: Blood Brothers; Matilda; Much Ado About Nothing; Macbeth; Romeo and Juliet and many others.

What is special about us?

We as teachers have high expectations of our learners and encourage them to set challenging goals in order to drive ambition. We believe that both Parents/Carers and teachers working together give students the confidence, provision and support to become the best that they can be. Our ethos is that every child matters and we aim for every student to leave Marriotts School having achieved their full potential.
