English

At Chase Terrace Academy we aspire for all of our students to achieve greater things than they ever thought possible. 

We pride ourselves on being a warm and welcoming school that places community at the heart of everything we do. Our ambitious curriculum is enriching and inclusive, providing challenge and breadth for all. This empowers our students to become compassionate, confident and creative individuals who are resilient, respectful and equipped with a desire to take up a fulfilling role in society and the wider world.

In English we aspire to foster a love of our subject. We encourage students to read independently and widely. We teach our pupils to express themselves confidently and creatively in both the written and the spoken word. We hope to inspire our pupils by showing them how rich and diverse English is. We aim to increase motivation by providing authentic, meaningful and relevant learning experiences. We understand that English is the foundation of all other subjects; it has huge social and moral implications for our learners and we aim to foster critical thinking skills to develop our pupils into empathetic learners.
