The number of sessions of English that a young person will be offered is dependent on the number of days attending the Hope Service and their individual needs.

The aim of the sessions is to develop the skills of communication, both spoken and written. At Key Stage 3 the curriculum is carefully tailored to facilitate reintegration back into secondary education. The choice of books, plays and writing tasks mirror those that the young person will encounter upon their return to school.

At Key Stage 4 we offer the opportunity to gain nationally recognised qualifications in Functional Skills for Reading and Writing and additionally we support young people who are preparing for GCSEs in Language and Literature.

We also work with small groups to develop their communication skills through play reading, a book group and supporting young people to write articles for ‘Our Voice’, a bespoke magazine printed and distributed by Surrey CAMHS.
