English at Ridgewood


At Ridgewood Community High School, English and the teaching of English is the foundation of our curriculum.  We ensure that English is not only taught as a discrete subject but that it is embedded throughout the curriculum.


Through using high-quality texts, immersing pupils in vocabulary rich learning environments and ensuring curriculum expectations and the progression of skills is met, the pupils at Ridgewood will be exposed to a language rich, creative and a continuous English curriculum which will develop a love of reading, creative writing and purposeful speaking and listening.


Our pupils will also develop functional literacy to help the transition to life after education.
