Welcome to English

Welcome to English at the Academy!

The English Department hopes to challenge students to be the best that they can be, inspiring a curiosity and passion for our language. We intend for our students will be equipped with the tools to understand, to question and to communicate effectively for a brighter future.

Underpinning our vision are two core aims: firstly, to inspire a passion for the arts and a curiosity to find out more and then secondly, to ensure that students leave us able to communicate effectively with fantastic reading, writing and speaking and listening skills. We hope that over the course of the five years that your son or daughter is with us that they will develop this passion but also that you will see them develop as confident and articulate communicators.

Please stay in touch with us; nothing is more important to us than making sure your child flourishes in English.
