Subject Leader: Miss M. Coffield

In English we aim to fuse the love and value of reading with the functional skills required for life. Students have the opportunity to develop and expand their knowledge and skills of reading and writing through a diverse study of Literature and Language texts. The English curriculum at Astrea Academy Woodfields is exciting, enjoyable, and varied. We strive as a team to encourage creative, analytical and evaluative thinking that translate into real-world scenarios and affect every subject your child will study.
