Language is the key to the heart of people.

– Ahmed Deedat


In English lessons at Orley Farm, learners will embark on metaphorical journeys to places such as the Amazon rainforest, the bloody battlefields of World War One, the bleak heaths of Macbeth’s Scotland and the island inhabited by stranded schoolboys in Golding’s classic novel. They will explore a range of carefully selected class readers, engage in thought-provoking classroom debates and discussions, learn how to critically analyse and engage with texts and feel increasingly confident in independently tackling comprehension and assessment questions, alongside enjoying our state-of-the-art library facilities. Our English teachers are full of passion for all aspects of the subject and strive to inspire learners to feel the same way!
