The English Department consists of four classrooms, all equipped with Smartboard Technology, and a flexible working area. Our personal reading programmes, created in liaison with the library, inspire young people to read and we encourage creative writing with entry to national competitions.

Pupils are taught many skills relevant to the workplace including critical thinking, delivering presentations and interview techniques.

English is offered at National 4, 5, Higher and Advanced Higher levels. Pupils also have the opportunity to study Film-making in S3 and Media at National 4, 5 and Higher Levels.

Regular homework is given to support learning and a weekly Study Support session is available to all pupils.
