Whilst the English Department at Westbourne prides itself on its excellent results and its ability to ensure every student achieves the best grades they can, we also aim to instil in them a life-long love of reading, writing and performance. With this in mind, the Department offers students a wealth of extra-curricular activities in which they can become involved. They may opt to be a student librarian, join a book club or enter one of the many creative writing competitions which we run. We take advantage of Sheffield’s excellent theatres and frequently run trips to see plays at a variety of venues. Students are often given the opportunity to become involved in creative workshops during enrichment sessions and we regularly invite guest authors into school to speak to us about their work. Please take a look at the “News” section of the website to see the exciting events which have taken place in the English Department in recent months.
