English Literature is one of the most interesting and wide ranging subjects available for your child to study. As English is the most widely used language in the world, knowledge of English literature is fundamental to developing an understanding of the world.

The English language is a remarkable thing with an almost infinite number of possible sentences. It is the language of many key points in history from the King James Bible (the most widely read book), to Shakespeare, the American Declaration of Independence and becoming the only ever language spoken on the moon.

Knowledge of literature will not only mean knowledge of novels but also theatre, journalism and poetry. Furthermore by understanding the writing of our language your child will come to learn about their own history and understand the way that language is not just created by us but also shapes our understanding of the world around us.
