Our manuals support the facilitation of an English programme designed to guide scholars, be relevant, relatable and engaging.

This manual builds on introductory language and literary concepts as previously learnt, and aims to establish a rapport with pertinent texts, while developing the skills to effectively communicate and write their opinions in a structured, dynamic manner.

This manual continues to build on listening and communication skills through a critical lens, while delving deeper into literary concepts, focusing written and visual skills around media literacy.

This manual prepares scholars for their final year, by enhancing and building up their critical thinking skills through the application of communicative, visual and written skills and concepts learnt throughout their high school years.
