Curriculum Leader: Mr Dan Skirrow
The English Faculty at Hardenhuish School is a vibrant team of highly committed specialists, passionate about our subject and passionate about working with young people. We share a common purpose – using our love for literature to enthuse, empower and motivate the students in our care. We pride ourselves on delivering a carefully developed curriculum that is both stimulating and challenging, as well as encouraging our pupils to be creative, resilient and ambitious. Alongside the dynamic work that goes on in lessons, we offer a diverse and exciting programme of extra-curricular English activities.
We are committed to striving for new, innovative ways to bring English to life for our pupils beyond the classroom and really excite them about our subject. This year has seen Year 7 competing in a fiery Poetry Slam, Year 8 reflecting on the poetry of the First World War with a visiting poet and Year 9 watching a performance of Romeo and Juliet.
