Welcome to the English Department

Why is English an important subject to me?

English is not just about reading books and writing stories, it’s a gateway to all other subjects and careers. We aim to develop all of our students to become articulate, fluent and creative.

Wherever there is speaking, writing, or critical thinking English is essential. We want all of our students to be able to express what they know and what they don’t know about a subject.
Our team put strong emphasises on reading, writing and grammar, developing students to become better communicators.

English is virtually relevant to everything we do, whether it be at home, at school or our careers. In our daily lives we are all surrounded by information which serve different purposes. We encourage our students to become critical readers and explore how writers craft language and structure for effect.
