English & Literacy

The English & Literacy Faculty is a large and dynamic team committed to teaching challenging and enjoyable lessons to students of all abilities.  The Faculty also includes the il@b, our state-of-the-art library and digital learning suite.  The Faculty is always keen to involve teachers and students in extra-curricular activities.  We have a strong history of holding successful poetry events, and have visiting poets every year.  We have recently participated in BBC Shakespeare Off By Heart competition, the Shadowing Carnegie scheme and Debate Mate. New for 2011-12 is the Faculty’s partnership with First Story who have provided the school with our own writer in residence, Marie Philips, who runs weekly creative writing sessions for students.
