In the English Department we believe that a child who can communicate effectively in both the spoken and written word has every reason to be confident and to have a robust self-esteem.

This is why the fun and varied pursuits which form part of the Ardvreck English curriculum are designed not only to help children to develop a love of English Language and Literature but also to ensure that they become confident and successful communicators.

The diverse programme includes: regular theatre visits; book fayres; numerous competitions; visiting poets and authors; poetry and prose recitals; debating and an enthusiastic, whole-school celebration of World Book Day!
