English in Middle School

The aim of English in the Middle School is to continue to foster in children a love of literature, and to encourage them to become fluent and articulate speakers and writers. The children use a wide variety of texts and sources in an exciting and challenging programme which give the flexibility to explore all areas of English, from creative writing to newspaper articles, hot seating to debating, while laying the foundations for Common Entrance.

English is the basis for all other subject and we seek to bring the subject to life for the in as many ways as possible. This includes our Literacy Day, National Poetry Day, theatre visits, Book fairs, read-athons, using drama and also entrance to a range of different competitions.
