English has a pre-eminent place in education and society and the English curriculum plays a fundamental role in empowering students to think, communicate and participate fully in society. All students have the right to study English as a discipline and to consider the beauty and truths in Literature.
Therefore the core purposes of study of English at KEVI HWGA are:
To expose students to what is considered to be powerful and important knowledge so that they can think more, think deeper and join the conversation of society.
To encourage confidence when tackling meaning and significance in texts so that students feel comfortable with the extensive and rich tradition of ideas and meaning in English literature.
To provide students with the space and knowledge to impose their own judgements and meaning.
