Our Vision: As outlined in our curriculum intent, at Barton Hill Academy we believe that a high-quality education in English will teach pupils to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others and, through their reading and listening, others can communicate with them. Through reading in particular, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, socially and spiritually. Literature, especially, plays a key role in such development. Therefore, we aim to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment and the study of a broad range of texts that develop their cultural capital. We believe in providing an enriching curriculum that allows our children to not only learn about but also experience the world around them, challenging them to deepen their understanding and this is woven throughout English learning at Barton Hill Academy.
