The English Faculty is responsible for teaching English language and English literature from Year 7 to Year 11. We want to make students read and write in ways that they won’t have the opportunity to do elsewhere. We want to help them become readers, writers and speakers for whom doors will keep opening. We want students to enjoy English and remain in the habit of reading for pleasure.
The English Faculty drives the 'Accelerated Reader' scheme in partnership with HVC Library for students in Year 7 and 8. You can find out more about it here.
The English Faculty also provides inspiration and opportunities for children with poetry, creative writing, debating and other language-based arts.
