The English programme is designed to facilitate progress in several areas:

  • Writing for a variety of purposes. This includes making appropriate organisational and vocabulary choices.
  • Understanding ideas and information through reading a wide range of material.
  • Using oral and visual language to communicate effectively.

Support is offered to students experiencing difficulties in the above areas. These students will be part of extra classes that aim to fill the gaps they have in their literacy learning.

In every area of English we encourage students to think critically and in depth, to analyse language choices and to evaluate the effectiveness of their own and others' work.
