All pupils study English and English literature as an integrated course to the end of year 11 following the Cambridge IGCSE course. Many go on to study English literature in the sixth form where the OCR specification is followed and some pupils read the subject in higher education. English lessons are based around a variety of full­ class, individual or small ­group activities. Pupils are actively encouraged to participate in the extra­-curricular opportunities provided by the department including: theatre trips, in-house theatre experiences, the school magazine, debating, creative writing and various literary competitions.
