English offers students from Years 7 to 12 opportunities to develop practical oral and written communication skills and discerning reading strategies to navigate an ever-changing world.

In English, students will assess the world they live in and navigate it by building knowledge of themselves, the past, society, the world and their place in it. They will gain skills to participate fully and meaningfully in preparation for their post-school life.

Through English and English Extension, students will build on existing knowledge and skills in the areas of reading, writing, creating, speaking and listening. They will study various contemporary and traditional texts, displaying their knowledge individually and in teams.

The English Learning Area encourages students to see and make sense of the world creatively, critically and insightfully.
