The English Department strives for excellence and works hard to raise standards and provide as much individual attention as possible, which is certainly reflected in our excellent results last year. The key to our success lies in our enthusiasm and love of our subject, which we make every effort to instil in our students.
We have taken an innovative approach and created booklets and worksheets that cater for all pupils by providing more than enough work in each half term to enable stretch and challenge. We encourage reading an assortment of genres, and girls may take books out freely from either the library or the English book room, which stocks a varied selection.
Our dedicated multi-platform website accessible on iPhone, iPad, Mac and Windows PC, for our English students in Year 12 and Year 13 not only covers everything students need to know about their set texts, but also links them to other websites for criticisms and contexts to ensure comprehensive coverage of the Assessment Objectives. A page for Year 11 is also in development and coming soon.
