We are a large and successful department of English Language and English Literature specialists. We offer the broadest possible range of experience of all the forms of writing and a wide range of in-class and enrichment reading activities.  We host creative writing groups, invite specialist speakers, organise trips and have a thriving library as part of our programme.  We encourage older students to engage with the younger ones with reading activities and ask KS5 students to help younger students with aspects of their lower school English work where appropriate. We believe that skills for life are as important as examination  skills  and we offer varied programme that reflects this belief.
