Girls explore topics through a range of collaborative and personal projects while learning to write their own poetry, analyse plays and understand character development in novels such as Frankenstein, The Tempest and Holes.
The differences between books and film adaptations are explored as media becomes an increasingly important part of the English language. The perspectives of post-modernism and romanticism are also used to inform contextual comparison as pupils refine their analytical prowess.

The Department also offers a wide range of activities from trips to film festivals and lectures with high profile linguists such as BBC commentators and industry leaders. In weekly sessions in our Language Laboratories we teach both a technical approach to translation and a more communicative approach to the language.
Girls expand their vocabulary to discuss hobbies, places and health issues. IGCSE age Pupils tackle more difficult societal issues such as unemployment, the environment, school life versus social life and the impact of technology in our daily lives.
Originality and creativity become more important and an awareness of current affairs is fostered through the study of news items and the independent research sessions required for speaking tests.
