Creative Voice

Our Hub vision is to create an inspirational alive community that exceeds expectations. To empower self-direction, independent thought and expression through language and visual forms

Learning Hub AIMS

  • Developing inquisitive thought that is articulated with high levels of enthusiasm and engagement.
  • Developing highly effective literacy strategies that can motivate and create confidence in the teacher and learner.
  • Developing innovative styles of learning through language, movement and media.

English and Media

English is both a practical activity needed in everyday life and an intellectual discipline that allows students to access much deeper levels of interpretation. An English education, which begins pre-school, will cover all text types, developing the craft of writing and speaking & listening. Like the other arts, it involves imagination and feelings and helps us to make sense of the world. Being a confident reader of novels filled with imagined characters and situations, and the relationships and events that they encounter helps students to develop empathy.

Through engagement in reading, writing and speaking & listening, students apply their imaginations and draw upon their own personal experiences. Their increasing knowledge and understanding of how these three different elements make up English enables them to effectively shape, express and share their ideas, feelings and responses, making use of language in a way that is clear, nuanced and perceptive. Outstanding English teaching will result in students learning about different genres and times.  English communicates through the language and conventions of both the written and spoken word. This results in all students gaining access to the greatest form of human expression in the recognised world.

The English language is international, used as the dominant way of communicating across the world. It facilitates opportunities for students to explore the world of people from other places, times and cultures, and to examine differences and similarities with their own environment.

Modern Foreign Languages

Learning a foreign language takes time and dedication. Through language learning, our students learn to commit to an intellectual and academic discipline which they can develop and explore fully over time and with regular practice. Learning a language therefore teaches students to develop high aspirations, to show courage in formulating ideas in a foreign language and to develop their self-confidence.  Achieving good grades in an MFL language can inform student perspectives on career and life opening up worldwide opportunities.
