We consider the teaching and learning of English to be the foundation of all other learning in our school. We strive to develop our teaching craft to adapt to our students’ needs, in a partnership with parents, carers and, above all else, our students.

Our aims are:

1  To provide our students with a keen understanding, interest and proficiency in their use of language, both written and spoken.

2  To nurture a love of our shared language, its heritage and its literature. We aim to explore the nature of the society and world in which we live, both through direct observation and through the novels, plays, poetry and non-fiction material which we teach and which we encourage students to experience independently.

3  To develop in our students a love for reading – reading for learning and reading for pleasure.

4  To enable students to work hard for examination results which will allow them to make their own career choices.

5  That the students will enjoy our lessons and find them worthwhile and stimulating. We aim to develop, review and adapt our teaching craft, strategies and techniques, to meet the needs and interests of our students.
