Hampton College English Department prides itself on being highly creative, dynamic and forward thinking and we hope that all future students will be too. We see English as not only as a fundamental tool to aid students with developing skills in all subject areas, but also using literature to appreciate culture, develop enquiring minds and help empathise with others. Harnessing and developing students’ creative skills is at the heart of what we do. The student experience across all key stages is one where they are able to maximise their full creative and analytical abilities in order for them to enter the adult world being empowered by language.
English doesn’t stop at the classroom door. As the lead specialist subject, English has an impact on the students’ wider school lives. In recent years, we have held successful ‘Poetry Slams’, Shakespeare Drama Days, visiting authors, and have entered year eight students for POSCAS (Peterborough
Young People’s Film Awards). Our students have also benefited
from a variety of enriching trips, including Poetry Live and theatre trips.
