Following the announcement from the DfE in December 2017, a network of English Hubs have been funded as part of the DfE's Social Mobility Action Plan, with a specific focus on improving early language and literacy teaching.

The Kernow English Hub

The Kernow English Hub officially launched in January 2019. It is our mission to ensure that every child becomes a reader through supporting the teaching of early language and phonics and fostering a love of reading in all schools. The Kernow English Hub based at Trenance Learning Academy and is one of 32 schools across England appointed by the DfE to take a leading role in supporting schools in the teaching of early reading, closing the word gap and promoting a love of reading.


The Kernow English Hub runs Showcases, workshops and conferences throughout the year.
