English Language is appealing to students as it examines familiar texts from the real world including adverts, reviews, articles and speeches.
You will have the opportunity to explore new genres such as Spoken Language, Language Change Over Time, and even language of Social Media.
Lessons will focus on understanding how, and why language is used in specific ways. To do this effectively you will develop knowledge of key terminology which will enable you write in a concise and analytical style.

English subjects are challenging, but are an excellent preparation both for university and your future career. For instance careers include:
- Information management
- Careers in public services.
