English

English Teaching at The Orchard Centre aims to “promote high standards of Language and Literacy by equipping students with a strong command of the spoken and written language and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.” (Gov.uk English programmes of study, 14.05.2014).

English Department Programme of Study

As many of our students transfer to the Centre late in a Key Stage, or, alternatively, because they are taught at more than one establishment, the delivery of the curriculum may be subject to change in order to accommodate the particular needs of individual students.
