    Just wondering how much time at KS 3 and KS 4 your schools give for English. I've come from a school that gave 9 lessons of 50 minutes in a fortnight to a school with 4 and the difference is remarkable.

    I am HOD and am feeling pretty 'squeezed' as in - we've got to get better results, but there is so much that is out of my hands...

    Do you mean four 50 minute lessons a fortnight? That's absurd! That's only 100 minutes a week! It'd make my old school (135 minutes a week – the lowest found on any of these threads) seem generous!
