Welcome to
English

In English at St Helen’s, we see creativity and rigour as complementary forces. We shout loudly about the pleasure of reading, but in that enjoyment we see a gateway to exploring the issues that are important to young people. Yes, we talk about books – but we also talk about everything else.

Mr Jonathan Muir, Head of English
