English
The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.
Einstein

English at the Alice Smith School is lively, thought provoking and inspiring.

Students are encouraged to challenge their perceptions of the world, to confidently express their thoughts, to debate and wrestle with ideas, to draw inspiration from every source around them, and to formulate intricate connections within the power of language. 

Building upon the experiences of our students, who represent a wealth of cultures and experiences, English lessons are founded upon the values of the global learner and supported by a team of twelve specialist English teachers, support staff, and a well-resourced, continually evolving library.  We provoke a stimulating insight into the infinite possibilities of creativity, encouraging students to critically debate and challenge the assumptions of texts.

There are ample opportunities for students voices to be heard, to express and develop their literary skills beyond the classroom by participating in debating, inter-school creative writing and poetry competitions, seminars with visiting authors, taking on a role on the School Council and theatre trips. 

Alice Smith students genuinely enjoy English; the challenges faced are varied, exciting and fun.

The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.
