English is the study, use, and enjoyment of the English language and its literature, communicated orally, visually, and in writing, for a range of purposes and audiences and in a variety of text forms. Learning English encompasses learning the language, learning through the language, and learning about the language.
Understanding, using, and creating oral, written, and visual texts of increasing complexity is at the heart of English teaching and learning. By engaging with text-based activities, students become increasingly skilled and sophisticated speakers and listeners, writers and readers, presenters and viewers.
English is compulsory up to and including Year 12.
Students entering Year 11 will have English automatically selected for them.
Students entering Year 12 please make sure you select English as one of your courses - unless you are applying for Automotive Engineering Vocational Pathway or Building & Construction Vocational Pathway - in that case you will be automatically placed in the English VP class.
