The English Department
The main aim of the English department at Raine’s is that all of our students are equipped with the literacy and analytical skills that will help them in their futures. Students are encouraged to think independently and engage with novels, poetry, plays and non-fiction, from a variety of different periods. Student’s own creative writing is encouraged, and students learn through a variety of different activities, including drama and speaking and listening. English lessons are engaging, challenging and rewarding.
