English Curriculum Intent

At The Ripley Academy, we believe that students deserve a broad and ambitious English curriculum, rich in skills and knowledge, which piques curiosity and prepares students well for future learning and/or employment. Our aim is to deliver an exciting, engaging curriculum which engenders a love of English, recognising the vital role of the subject in increasing social mobility, developing students’ functional skills, cultural understanding and emotional wellbeing.
