The English Department at Aston aims to produce students who are confident and articulate in arguing for a point of view, enthusiastic and analytical in reading, and fluid and precise in writing. Students are taught the basis of these skills early in their time here, and encouraged to hone them through engagement with increasingly challenging texts and tasks as they progress through the school.
