English Department

Welcome to the English Department

It is our aim that in English at City Academy we imbue our students with a wide range of historical knowledge that will underpin a love of their literary heritage and the ability to powerfully interpret and analyse texts and information.

We want students to leave school with a rich appreciation of their cultural heritage, which they will get by studying an array of classics from the literary canon, and enter society with the ability to relate to, influence and lead others, through the in-depth teaching of vocabulary, allusions and themes in the texts.
