Our students are offered interesting, innovative, analytical and creative work in our English courses that reflect the College’s Gifted and Talented Arts programs. In addition, our students participate in a range of competitions and extracurricular programs including debating, writing competitions such as the Tim Winton Short Story Competition, the Young Writers’ Competition and the Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Competition and writer in residence programs.

Each lower school course is designed to reflect the three elements of the national curriculum – literacy, language and literature, and to prepare students for the progressive and challenging texts used in the Year 11 and 12 English and literature courses.  More detail about our English courses can be found in our curriculum handbooks located here.

English is also offered as part of our Academic Excellence Program.
