At Harris Academy Battersea, the aim of the English curriculum is to cultivate the three Ls: literacy, life and love of language.
Literacy allows students to flourish in a changing world by allowing them to develop the skills to communicate and converse at any table. Additionally, students explore the human condition and what it means to be human through the literary texts they are exposed to.
Finally, we aim to foster a love of language and encourage students to appreciate the beauty of storytelling and the power of the written word. Through these components, we seek to create citizens who can communicate and engage fully in conversations about humanity. With these skills, we hope to open doors to students to choose from a range of career paths including law, teaching, journalism, marketing and many more.
