English at St. Saviour’s and St. Olave’s.
As a core subject, we believe fundamental to English, at St. Saviour’s and St.Olave’s, is the exploration of communication. The essential aim of our teaching is to provide the women of the future with exceptional skills in speaking, reading and writing. In an increasingly competitive and narrowing world, it is absolutely vital that our students are confident communicators.
Through exploring the breadth and depth of our Literary Heritage, our students dive into different time periods and different cultures. Injustices and prejudices of the past are exposed and explored from a modern day perspective, developing social conscience and empathy whilst doing so.
