This English option is for independent learners who enjoy the Writing and Reading strands of the English curriculum. It will cover a range of texts from both traditional and new canons of work and students can tailor their internal assessments to suit texts that interest them. 

In this course, students craft their writing skills through weekly writing sessions, with the goal of building an extensive portfolio. Prompts, based on a range of the written and visual texts studied in class, will be provided.

This course supports the critical thinking and content required for the English Scholarship examination.
