These fantastic results are testament to the creative, imaginative and passionate staff who make the department what it is. From Teach-First graduates to members of staff with years of experience working at schools across the city, each member of the department is committed to ensuring that each child achieves their full potential whilst greatly enjoying their English lessons.
Here is the vision and mission statement of the English department:
Regardless of prior attainment or circumstances, we want our students to leave Aldersley High School at the end of their GCSE or GCE courses well-equipped with the life skills needed to become well-rounded individuals. We will be uncompromising in our expectations of all groups of students and we will endeavour to foster a nurturing environment where students feel safe to be themselves. We aim to encourage thoughtful students, inspire opinionated voices and develop enquiring minds through our commitment to well-planned, engaging teaching and outstanding practice.
