ENGLISH

That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.

F. Scott Fitzgerald

Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.

Frederick Douglas

English is as the heart of everything we do in life. It is the foundation of all other subjects and we use its written and spoken forms in order to present ourselves to the world outside school and to achieve academically.

Our department seeks to foster a love and understanding of the English language and notable works of literature amongst students of all ages and abilities.  We understand the power of our subject to help students navigate our culture and chart their course in the world.

The aim of the department is to guide students to success, both academically and towards an enjoyment and love of literature and its possibilities.  We want our students to become effective communicators in both formal and informal contexts in order that they are empowered to engage fully in our wider society. We hope to inspire students to develop their skills beyond school and into their adult lives.
