We aim to engage our pupils through a varied and exciting curriculum.
This document outlines the S2 CfE English course.

Through a combination of literature, media, language, creative writing, functional literacy skills, talking and listening, we enable our young people to develop their literacy as well as their creativity.

CEL: critical evaluation of literature. Pupils will read a text and comment on the literary techniques used by the author, evaluating how effective they are. This crucial skill will be built on each year in preparation for exams.

Close Reading: Pupils will practice the skills required when reading a text for understanding, analysis or evaluation purposes, which will be built on in preparation for exams in later years.
