Literacy is the thread running through all learning. At Stormont the development of strong reading, writing, speaking and listening skills lies at the heart of our teaching.

English is a core subject in the National Curriculum. The fundamental skills, knowledge and concepts of the subject as set out in the National Curriculum are taught. Much of the English taught at Stormont is based on the National Curriculum requirements. However, extension of the children’s education in English is both possible and desirable. Our expectations of the children’s achievement are high – and in preparing them for 11+ entrance tests, we also hope to inspire a love of reading, writing and communicating.
