Coombes Boys School

English

 Poetry Workshop with poet Lewis Buxton

Pupils will study a diverse range of literature, developing their appreciation of the writer's craft, as well as being taught how to establish their own writing style. Alongside this they will have opportunities to develop their speaking and listening skills: becoming confident communicators and active listeners. Pupils' ongoing work is assessed regularly as well as through more formal termly examinations.

As well as providing a stimulating learning environment within the classroom, there are a wide array of opportunities for pupils outside the classroom: writing workshops, author and poet visits, theatre trips, public speaking competitions, debating and book clubs, to name a few.
