English has a pre-eminent place in education and in society. At St. Margaret's-at-Cliffe our high-quality curriculum in English will teach our pupils to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others and through their reading and listening, others can communicate with them. Through reading in particular, our pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Literature, especially, plays a key role in such development. Reading also enables our pupils both to acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know. All the skills of language are essential to participating fully as a member of society.
