In English, students study, use, and enjoy language and literature communicated orally, visually, or in writing.


  • Students need to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that enable them to be competent and confident readers.
  • Reading is a major part of all curriculum areas and must be a focus for teaching and learning.

Learning Goals

Through our teaching and learning programmes, our students should:

  • Understand and use links between reading, writing, oral, and visual language
  • Become readers who select and read a wide range of texts for pleasure and/or information
  • Make meaning and think critically about texts
  • Use strategies to build comprehension, fluency and accuracy
  • Be successful readers and writers who understand deeper and surface features that will suit the purpose and audience
