English

English is an exciting, fun and challenging  subject. Students will study a broad range of novels, short stories, plays, and poetry.  They will also be writing a variety of fiction and non-fiction texts.  Speaking and listening is a crucial part of the curriculum too.  We value students spoken language skills and how this enriches their writing and understanding, as well as promoting deeper critical thinking.  Speaking and listening activities include performing monologues,  taking part in debates, delivering speeches and drama-based activities like hot-seating.  We hope all our students enjoy English lessons as much as we enjoy teaching it.
