English is a vitally important subject that allows pupils to grow in confidence through the use of words, both spoken and written. English allows us to communicate our thoughts and ideas and enhances our problem-solving skills as well as encouraging a higher level of thinking.
As a department we aim to share our love of literature, both contemporary and classic, with the hopes of engaging our pupils and encouraging a love of life-long, independent reading. We foster good reading habits through the use of library periods with the BGE level and expect independent reading to be done at home. We recommend a minimum of 35 minutes of reading per day for all pupils.
We seek to make the study of English a fulfilling and enjoyable experience for all.
