Welcome to the English department’s homepage of the Campion School Website. On this page, you will find important information about the English department here at Campion.
At Campion we are committed to ensuring that pupils are successful and achieve during their time here, equipping pupils with the skills they will need to help them prepare for life beyond Campion. This is certainly true within the English Department. Within English, pupils are provided with the opportunity to develop and enhance their communication skills, whether this is through reading, writing, speaking or listening. These skills are at the heart of pupils’ learning in English. Simultaneously, we seek to provide pupils with the opportunity to develop their understanding of the world around them, as they develop a wider cultural awareness and understanding. Through English, pupils are provided with the opportunity to study and develop their understanding and appreciation of a range of writers and texts from throughout time.
Whilst supporting and encouraging pupils to develop their skills and abilities in English, we also are also committed to promoting an ethos of Independent Learning. This is something we aim to instil throughout KS3 and develop throughout Key Stages 4 and 5. It is our aim to ensure that your son / daughter has the best possible experience of English here at Campion and we urge you to talk regularly to your son/daughter about his/her progress in English. Together, we can ensure that all pupils here at Campion can achieve their full potential. Please do feel free to contact myself and/or your son/daughter’s English teacher should you ever have any questions, concerns or comments with regards to your son/daughter’s progress in English.

Subject Leader for English, Campion School
