English at Sompting Abbotts begins by giving children the teaching and support needed to build a positive foundation in speaking, listening, reading and writing. Our teaching is dynamic, inspiring and supported by ICT resources. In the Pre Prep and Main School, English work is bolstered by several libraries.
Children enter writing competitions (800 words, Radio 2), enjoy contributing to the school magazine and have the opportunity to flex their verbal powers in our Debating Club. A “Great Reading Race” is held each year in the Main School, which the whole school enjoys taking part in. Prizes for writing prose and poetry are awarded annually.
