Welcome to English

At Corby Technical School we recognise the pivotal role that literacy plays across all our subjects. During our latest Ofsted inspection, where we were rated Outstanding, inspectors found our literacy provision was highly effective.

We venture to explore a rich history of literature whilst developing the linguistic and literacy skills of our students.

We endeavour to build on the prior learning of our students and improve the reading, writing and collaborative skills they would have obtained in primary school. We have a range of texts for staff to choose from with every student studying a Shakespeare text, a fictional novel, poetry and non-fiction texts over the course of every year.

Our approach is founded on a positive reading ethos and the development of literacy skills forms the foundation of everything we do.
