Learning

English

 

Welcome to our English Department. English is one of the core subjects and without doubt, one of the flagship subjects within Glengormley High School. As a team we aim to:

  • encourage the development of all pupils in reading, writing, speaking and listening;
  • enable pupils to be able to work independently and as part of a team;
  • empower pupils to develop a range of desirable personal qualities such as perseverance, initiative and independence;
  • our favourite aim: to build confidence in pupils, encourage success and develop each pupil’s potential in order to prepare them for adult life.

All of the teachers within the department have a passion that inspires our young students to want to achieve the best possible outcome for themselves. We will work with every student to overcome a difficulty and to provide the support to enhance the strengths of our young people. Together we revise, adapt and rejuvenate our planning and unit topics to keep the engagement flowing; to differentiate a level of challenge to ensure progress is made at all levels and to build a confidence in each individual so they ‘aspire to succeed’ and have the best opportunities available to them when beginning the next chapter in their lives.
