In the English department both Language and Literature are taught from Transitus to S6 Advanced Higher. We encourage pupils to be independent, reflective learners who are supported in an environment which has high expectations as well as tailoring the learning experience of every pupil at every level; embracing innovative and enthusiastic methodology such as Cooperative Learning as well as other cognitive learning techniques, and working closely with both the Junior School and Support for Learning.

We run trips to the theatre, hold book fairs, run and enter competitions for pupils in creative writing and public Speaking and hold drama productions.

Pupils are also inspired to read widely as part of our Reading for Enjoyment initiative, which seeks to promote and raise Literacy across the Curriculum.
