The faculty places great value on speaking and listening work, which is an essential part of all programmes of study across the year groups as well as being an essential life skill. The students enjoy a plethora of activities such as debating, presentations and drama performances and they are also involved with regional and national projects.

In upper school, students have the opportunity to take, depending on their abilities, GCSE English, GCSE English Language, GCSE English Literature or Entry Level Certificates.

All students are encouraged to take a critical and creative approach to the study of English. Students explore and engage with an array of modern and English Literary Heritage texts; they are encouraged to be critical thinkers and explorers of the world of literature.
