Welcome to the English Department

In the Williamwood High School English department, students work hard to build their reading, writing, listening and talking skills. Students will have a wide variety of excellent experiences which challenge them to refine their literacy skills, as well helping them to achieve the broader aims of Curriculum for Excellence. In the senior years students receive a high standard of preparation for their National Qualifications and are challenged to maximise on their potential.

These skills, achievements and overall experiences in English are an integral part of every student’s time in the school.

The purpose of the site is to provide advice to parents and students about the courses for each year group. Also, the site will provide helpful links for classwork and homework resources. There are also updates about achievements in the department, as well as inter-disciplinary learning opportunities.

Use the tabs at the top of the page to access the information relevant to your child.
