Global Communications Faculty

Subjects:  English Language, English Literature, French, Spanish, Media

The vision of The English and Communications Faculty at Epping St John’s is to provide a challenging, dynamic and varied curriculum that is designed to ensure that all students fulfil their full academic potential by leaving ESJ as articulate speakers, analytical readers, confident writers of The English Language, critical consumers of the mass media and fluent linguists. Our intention is to make each pupil an independent learner. Schemes of work are constantly reviewed and updated to ensure that the delivery of the curriculum meets the needs of all students. It is expected that all students engage in independent personal reading throughout their time at ESJ and their progress is monitored. Teachers in the Faculty also offer students a range of extra-curricular activities that are designed to extend their knowledge, skills and interest in the subjects of English, French and Spanish including a day trip to Boulogne in France in Year 7 and a 5 day trip to Paris in Year 9. Home Learning tasks are set regularly and next-step learning targets enable students to make rapid progress in their learning.

Year 7

Students take a Baseline Test soon after entry to ESJ. The results are carefully moderated to ensure that students are placed in the correct sets. These sets are reviewed at regular intervals throughout students’ time at the school.

Current units of work ensure that students study a breadth of texts from drama, poetry, non-fiction/media, modern and pre-20th Century prose and Shakespeare.

In French and Spanish, students cover the following topics: Self, Family and Friends, Home School and Free Time Activities.

Students also have the option of studying for a GCSE Media Studies qualification. This involves them producing high-quality media-type products which show their understanding of the use of established media conventions. Candidates IT skills need to be highly-developed to obtain the highest GCSE grades.

English Literature

This A Level is an ideal choice for anyone who loves reading and books. Literature and is interested in the big questions affecting human existence. It is also a highly respected A Level that can be instrumental in helping students gain university places in a variety of subjects. Students will also gain a great deal of academic prowess through a subject that promotes the development of transferable skills. English students are taught to think analytically, consider different interpretations and listen and respond to one another sensitively in preparation for the seminar style environment they are likely to find at university. One of the most important skills they learn is how to write coherently and critically. This is an essential skill that will aid them in their other subjects and is invaluable in higher education and the world of employment.
