The teaching of English at Ludgrove is dynamic and exciting and the work covered designed to be inspiring and also challenging. Naturally, the subject is always different and through the school a wide variety of literature is used to inspire pupils. As all pupils are unique, literature and written tasks are chosen and geared to best inspire each group of boys, while close attention is also paid to the basics of the written language. Regular competitions help to inspire boys not only to produce written work of the highest quality, but to derive great enjoyment and achievement from the construction of excellent English. Work is differentiated according to ability and very close links are maintained with the learning support department through weekly meetings between the heads of these departments to discuss the progress of individual boys.
