Hear from our Pioneer Schools
“What really excited me was the idea of bringing in awe and wonder. I’m looking at how can we start to make more of our pupils go on to take English Language and Literature at A Level. We need to really inspire them at KS3.“– Lorraine, Head of English at a Pioneer School in Hayling Island
“It was the Awe and Wonder part that got me because KS3 is meant to be fun and exciting – the range of texts that are being studied and the breadth of it. It sounds exciting!“– Nurun, Head of English at a Pioneer School in Birmingham
“We were looking to diversify our KS3 Curriculum [and] we were also wanting to make sure we were raising expectations at KS3.”– Pioneer School in Harrow
