English at UTC aims to develop students’ skills of retrieval, interpretation, analysis, evaluation, comparison, the crafting of their language and their technical accuracy – all made relevant and transferrable to the word of work.
In English Language, students will have the opportunity to recognise and empathise with the viewpoints and perspectives of others, as well as being challenged to think and work creatively.
In Literature, they will dip into politics and consider socialism versus capitalism through their study of Priestley’s An Inspector Calls and Dickens’ A Christmas Carol; debate the attributes of good and bad leadership whilst reading Shakespeare’s Macbeth and understand and appreciate others’ points of view in relation to Power and Conflict poetry.
Look out for:
- RSC live stream Shakespeare
- Theatre trips
- No Pens Day Wednesday
- Accident investigation
- World Book Day
- Get Caught Reading
