Love to Learn, Together with the Lord
At All Saints' we believe that English has a pre-eminent place in education and in society. We aim to provide a high-quality education in English which 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, our pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. We believe that literature, especially, plays a key role in such development. We also believe that reading enables pupils both to acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know. All the skills of language are essential to participating fully as a member of society; pupils, therefore, who do not learn to speak, read and write fluently and confidently are effectively disenfranchised.
