English involves learning about texts and about language, using the modes of speaking, listening, reading, viewing and writing. Learners understand and compose a range of literature, media and everyday texts. They explore and engage with fictional, factual, non-print and multimedia texts from diverse cultural perspectives, take pleasure in using these texts to explore ideas and think imaginatively and critically about themselves, their world and the global community. They also use the texts they read, view and listen to as resources for creating and constructing their own texts.
Our mathematics programme is based on the philosophy that every child can be a successful mathematician. Our teachers carefully plan units of work to achieve certain outcomes and provide the opportunities needed to reach them. Students are set clear challenges and are encouraged to explore their own ways of achieving them.

They are challenged and excited; they develop self-confidence as a developing mathematicians and become independent self-directed and self-motivated learners.
