English Mastery’s mission is to enable all students to flourish in English.
We have designed the programme so that students graduate Year 9 as confident and literate readers and critical and accurate writers.

English Mastery is unique in that it is built on four pedagogical pillars that drive student progress. Each pillar is rooted in the latest cognitive and educational research which together form our approach.
