English

 

Trapped

 

 

 

Earlier this term, many of our students partook in a nationwide creative writing competition based on the word ‘TRAPPED’. The entries were sent off to Young Writers where their Editorial department, who create regional books and read every single story they’ve received, made their judgement. Work is selected for publication based on perception, imagination, expression, creativity and use of language. I am extremely delighted to announce that a number of entries from Meridian students have been chosen to be published in a book; Perilous Pursuits. Congratulations to each and every student who entered the competition, but particularly to those who will soon see their work in print. Parents and guardians, please check your emails to see if your child has been selected, as parental permission is required before work can be published. I will give out further details at a later date, if you would like to buy a copy of the book, once it has been published.

What is English for at Meridian High School?

The intent of our English Curriculum is to close and surpass any vocabulary gaps ensuring socioeconomic quity for students whilst developing cultural capital that ensures parity amongst contemporaries as well as access to literary arts and the lifelong joy of spoken word. 

Why does English as a subject matter?

The study of English introduces students to the literary canon, enabling students to access rich and engaging poetry, prose and drama from a range of literary periods. Through the study of English, students will develop an extended vocabulary, enabling them to express complex ideas and beliefs. English is pertinent in supporting students in their social, moral, and spiritual development, consistently enabling students to reflect on their own beliefs and values.

What does English help young people to achieve?

The English Curriculum encourages curiosity and debate, whilst also being designed to support all students in becoming effective communicators, critical thinkers, and creative writers. After studying English at Meridian High School, students will have a broad and extensive vocabulary, enabling them to confidently present ideas in speaking and writing.  Undoubtedly, English supports all young people in expressing their thoughts, feelings and ideas, making them attractive candidates for further education and careers.
