Reading is important, because if you can read, you can learn anything about everything and everything about anything.
- Tomie dePaola
The ethos of the English department is to inspire students to enjoy and excel in both English Language and English Literature. The English team has a wide range of experience and expertise and our aim is to work collaboratively to provide the best opportunities for Brimsham Green students. Reading is central to our work and we hope to inspire a love of reading in all our students. We believe readers are active participants in the world around them, and that engagement is critical to individual and social well-being. In addition to the study of literature, the study of English language empowers our students to articulate their thoughts and feelings about a range of key issues that affect them. Furthermore, by developing their writing and speaking skills, students will be able to form and adapt language for any situation that they will encounter.
