“Without words we cannot have ideas”
In the English Department we aim to develop the whole child. We want
students to learn about themselves, their relationships and to have an
awareness of their place in a multi-cultural society.
We want to develop confident students who are effective and reflective communicators. We believe in fostering a love of literature and an appreciation of how language can inform, entertain, shift and provide ambiguities.
In essence, we wish to enhance the quality of life of the students who pass through our classes. Every student will be motivated to achieve his or her best in external examinations and, equally importantly, will have learnt the power of language. As teachers we want to be remembered by our students as having opened new worlds by providing them with a joy in Literature and in reading that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
Aims to create:
- Cultural Awareness
- Critical Understanding
