English

All our students embark on a course in English, be it at Standard or Higher Level. We believe that by furthering your study of English at this stage, you are better prepared for university, and it stands you in good stead when embarking on a career of any kind.

We encourage you to challenge yourself in all aspects of English. In-depth reading stimulates ideas and generates discussion. You are expected to read from a range of texts and genres from around the world. This helps to broaden your knowledge of cultures and to establish a sense of identity in a global community.

In the Sixth Form, we are keen to adapt texts and teaching to suit the needs and tastes of individual classes, resulting in a more student-led learning environment. We endeavour to make you conversant, well-read and articulate before you embark on university life.
