About the English Faculty:
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

In the English learning area we aim to up skill our students with the ability to think critically while creating texts and responding to texts that they read. Students will engage in a wide reading programme and tackle a variety of genres through this exercise. There is a huge focus on the development of writing skills through the following genres of written work:
- Creating Poems and Short Stories
- Letters to the Editor
- Explanation Essays
- Expository Essay
- Research Report
In the Junior English programme, students will learn to craft both Poetic and Transnational writing. Senior English programmes offer individual learning pathways that suit all learners. The NCEA programmes are designed around the following themes :
- Level 1 : Overcoming Challenges
- Level 2: Identity and Alienation
- Level 3: Reality Versus Illusions.
The English faculty takes pride in academic achievement and is committed to the professional development of good teaching pedagogy. The learner is at the heart of everything we do.
