Year 11 English

11ENG
Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs B. Haybittle

The study of English is an essential basis for understanding all subjects. It involves developing skills in oral language, written language and visual language to help you take a full part in all aspects of life. It helps students grow in confidence through the use of language for a range of situations, purposes and audiences. It also exposes students to ideas, experiences and emotions through the work of a range of writers. Year 11 English is broken into two strands: Academic and Foundation. Both courses allow students to gain important literacy credits and both have the prerequisites for the Year 12 academic class in 2021.
