English and LOTE


English provides students with the skills to become confident communicators, imaginative thinkers and informed citizens. English helps students to become ethical, thoughtful, informed and active members of society. In English, students imaginatively and critically engage with literature to expand the scope of their experience.


Languages provide students with an understanding of both language and culture. Comparison and referencing between two languages and cultures builds understanding of how languages ‘work’, how they relate to each other and how language and culture shape and reflect experience. The experience of being in two worlds at once involves noticing, questioning and developing awareness of how language and culture shape identity.
