English literature and language are the gateway to a better understanding of human nature, life, history and everything else! Reading and writing are at the core of learning and therefore communication and language skills are a basic human right.
Language and literature equip young people with the knowledge and skills needed to participate as citizens of the world. Control over their language gives them power and control over their destinations. This power ranges from terms and conditions and small print to the moral and ethical questions or our society. Finally, reading is pure escapism from a busy and problematic world – it transports you into a new setting, meeting characters that inspire and surprise you. Reading for pleasure will change your perspective on everything.
