The department teaches units of work incorporating the National Curriculum for English.

All students study a range of topics, including a class reader, fiction and non-fiction reading and writing, drama, and poetry. Students are also taught skills in speaking and listening, research and library skills. Independent private reading takes place in every lesson. The English department works closely with the Special Educational Needs department to ensure improvements in basic literacy for those in need.

Students will take AQA GCSE English Language with GCSE English Literature.
A small number of students will do the Entry Level Certificate of Achievement in English.
