English allows us to communicate with other people and to explore different worlds through a variety of medium such as novels, films and plays.
Our aim in the English Department is to foster young men who can communicate clearly, think critically and appreciate literature. We also wish to encourage our students to participate in a variety of related activities such as debating, public speaking and writing competitions.
The Junior English programme focuses on developing the core skills of accurate writing, reading critically and speaking confidently. The Senior English programme has a variety of courses available and boys are placed in the programme which best suits their learning needs.
