  1. Curriculum
  2. English


What kind of writers would we like to develop: reporters, playwrights, biographers, novelists or  poets? The answer: it really doesn’t matter, as long as we are successful in awakening the creative, literary talents of all of our children, allowing them to become literate and articulate young people.

We are proud at Sandbrook to have enthusiastic teachers who are dedicated to releasing every child’s potential in all aspects of English: reading, writing and speaking and listening. Literacy skills underpin every curriculum area and provide the key to unlock the doors to every subject.
