St Mary's Catholic College, Wallasey

St Mary's Catholic College
A Voluntary Aided Academy


Welcome to the English homepage. Our students develop a life-long love of English and we foster an appreciation of the subject which begins in Year 7 and lasts, for many of our students, until Year 13 and beyond. We personalise learning for all of our students and celebrate the diversity of our community; some of our learners are gifted and talented and some enter St Mary’s with below average levels of reading and writing - our ethos ensures that they all make excellent progress.

At the heart of English here lies a genuine love of reading; our Key Stage 3 students begin their journey with a varied curriculum which includes regular use of our impressive college library, the highly successful Accelerated Reader programme and excellent ICT facilities. English at St Mary’s Catholic College is a celebration of our learners’ journeys, developing and improving skills, whilst enjoying a wide array of texts which enable our students to become successful and make excellent levels of progress. From studying functional English; problem solving; group work; individual focused activities and analysing a range of literature that includes everything from William Golding to Willy Russell; and William Shakespeare to John Boyne– with much in between. Studying English at St Mary’s Catholic College is a stimulating and diverse experience.
