'I like English very much because of the variety it offers. As well as lessons where we prepare for important exams, we have a library period for private reading and a Debating Society where anyone can speak for or against the motion. The Senior Reading Club gives us a good opportunity to discuss current fiction. All the English teachers are approachable and helpful.’

Joshua, Year 8

There has never been a greater need for children to be able to communicate effectively, both orally and through the written word. Skills learnt effectively at this age will prove essential as they grow and mature.
