It is our aim to teach more than just the content. As a department, we aim to enrich the learners with exposure to a diverse range of material; thus aiding in creating a balanced individual who is able to cope intellectually, socially and emotionally once they leave the secondary education phase.
The English Department achieved a 100% pass rate for the Matric Class of 2011, with a 60% average.
GRADES 8 - 11
Schemes of work for Grades 8 to 11 are developed by qualified teachers in accordance with the National Curriculum Statement.
What's more, we keep our finger on the pulse of modern learner needs with Powerpoint Presentations designed to stimulate the mind and soul.
In addition, we offer a and promote literature enrichment programmes to all learners in the school.

In addition, Department members are proactive and well-versed in educational issues:
