English is just as important out of the classroom as in it. Over the last year, we have seen pupils use their skills to make films, speak out about subjects that they feel strongly about, watch plays, report on events in the local community and much, much more.
In March, Eastwood Literacy Month begins and there will be an ‘Evening of Shakespeare’ put on by Year 8 pupils, with all money going to charity. This is a meaningful outcome as it makes English relevant for students beyond the classrooms and makes a difference to people’s lives.
