The philosophy of the English Department is to encourage our learners to enjoy the English language, to be enthusiastic about their lessons and, therefore, to progress in their learning. English and literacy is at the heart of all subjects, which is the reason the department encourages and builds on skills to aid literacy development in all the subject areas.
The English department strives to realise this vision by:
• making learning as creative and fun through varied activities focusing on the key areas of Speaking and Listening, Reading and Writing.
• allowing students to be creative thinkers, independent enquirers, team workers or effective participators, depending on whether they are writing in role, playing the mantle of expert or creating performance poetry.
• creating a love of literature and a desire for improving literacy skills for all abilities.
