I am currently doing a six month placement in Cambridge as part of my degree. After graduation next year I may either pursue some kind of Music Engineering or go back into youth work through my church.

English

Welcome to the English department.

In English, the skills and processes of reading, writing and talking naturally form the basis of learning at all stages. Through these, we aim to promote effective communication, critical thinking and a deep enjoyment of literature. Personal research and working in groups are actively encouraged as methods to complement the more traditional whole-class teaching approach.

S1 & S2 English aims to create an appreciation for reading and language.  These skills are then developed through the National 4/5 Courses.  At Higher and Intermediate 2 level pupils undergo extensive and intensive teaching in language skills, textual analysis and critical evaluation.  Pupils can then develop this further at Advanced Higher Level.

Our extra-curricular activities comprise the Book Group, Press Review discussion group, Creative Writing and Drama Club (S1-S6). Something there for every discerning pupil with an interest in language and culture!
