Learning to appreciate the classics and the modern

Our English programs seek to engage students of all abilities. Students learn to appreciate wonderful texts of all forms, including modern media, internet texts, film and speeches alongside the vitally important classical texts of literature.

Our enthusiastic staff are interested in fulfilling the potential of each individual student and bringing them to share the love of English as a subject.

Our English programs are designed to:

  • Help students to think creatively and imaginatively about the world around them and to challenge concepts rather than meekly accept them
  • Foster an appreciation of the classics - Shakespeare's works are taught throughout Years 7-12
  • Promote student public speaking skills
  • Extend those with a keen interest through HSC Extension 1 and 2 courses

In Years 11-12 English is compulsory study for the HSC, at Arndell students have the ability to chose the English course that best suits their skills and aspirations. We offer:

  • English Studies
  • English Standard
  • English Advanced
  • English Extension 1
  • English Extension 2 (Year 12 only)

Our staff challenge themselves to use the most up-to-date methods of teaching, with Interactive Smart Panels in all classrooms and a wonderfully resourced library.
