English Learning Area

The Communications Learning Area consists of English, Media Studies, Film Studies and Modern Foreign Languages.

These subjects have much in common when it comes to communication – using visual, oral and written means of communicating. In these different subjects students meet many aspects of language, in many forms and styles – but there are significant overlaps as well.

In these discrete subjects students will have their own programmes of study but together we seek to develop in students a sense of the richness and variety of communication available to us all.
