English at Papplewick is about life and experience, not about assembling pieces of language or just exercising skills. We want the boys to be confident communicators on paper and in discussion, so we need them to know that they will be listened to. Of course, spelling, punctuation and grammar have their place but we seek to unite analytical thinking with imagination, technical accuracy with flair, and help all our pupils to see beyond the surface. We encourage everyone to become independent readers, focused listeners, and fluent writers of our language.
