English Language & Literature


English lessons at Barlby are delivered by a team of specialists who are committed to generating a creative, innovative and exciting environment in which students can learn about their language, literary heritage and both explore and develop their skills and interests in language and literature.

We aim to develop skills, as well as confidence and enthusiasm, and an understanding of why language and literature are so important to our society, our relationships and our sense of self. We hope that our students will be able to take what they learn in lessons and apply it to their lives outside school. We want them to feel the pleasure and power that comes with developing language skills, as well as feeling confident that they can cope with what the examination system requires of them.
