These courses develop skills that are highly-valued by further education institutions and potential employers. We hope to develop a love of reading in students, particularly as research has proved beyond doubt that readers are generally more successful than non-readers in many areas of life and work.

what is english?

English Language comprises the study of reading and writing. Students develop their skills of reading a range of materials and writing for different purposes. There is an oral assessment but this does not constitute a part of students' final grades. English Literature comprises the study of Shakespeare, a 19th century novel, a modern play and a selection of poetry.
