All pupils in the United Kingdom study English until they are at least sixteen and it is paramount for their prospects that pupils leave school with a high standard of literacy. Well-developed literacy skills are a prerequisite for success in a range of other school subjects, particularly where extended essay writing is required. This means that both English Language and English Literature are highly valuable subjects as they develop cross-curricular skills, promote life-long learning, and equip students with the skills to succeed at university and in employment.
At Enniskillen Royal Grammar School we are passionate about our subject, and we strive to infuse our students with a love for English and English Literature. We nurture our students’ ability to write in many different forms for many different purposes and audiences. We develop our students’ analytical and evaluative skills in relation to reading and understanding texts. Furthermore, we also cultivate our students’ speaking and listening skills through a range of active learning approaches in the classroom.
