English Department

In English you will be developing your reading, writing, talking and listening skills.  Classwork and homework includes studying texts: plays, novels, short stories, newspaper articles and poems. You will also write in a variety of styles including creative and informative writing.

The English course also helps to develop listening and thinking skills. Opportunities will be given to talk, give presentations and debate ideas. You will be asked to consider how your English and Literacy skills make links with other subjects you are studying at school and what you hope to do when you eventually leave school.

 We take an integrated approach to learning: your close reading (reading for understanding analysis and evaluation) will also develop your writing and talking skills.
