Subject Overview

The English department has a themed curriculum from years 7 to year 11. Texts and topics studied give students the opportunity to develop their writing in persuasive and creative contexts. Our reading curriculum is designed for students to draw upon a wide variety of texts as reading stimulus and engage with different literary traditions as well as writers of real and relevant contexts. We want all our students to develop higher-order reading and critical thinking skills. This is to encourage genuine enquiry into the different topics and themes.
