Welcome to the English Department.

Students who study English at HLC will be successful, enthusiastic, resilient and aware of how the world around us is shaped by the language that we read, write and listen to every day.
Students will be inquisitive. They will be relentless in their questioning of the intentions and motivations of writers. They will enjoy communicating their own ideas with clarity and sophistication.
Students will be comfortable sharing their own ideas, respect those of others and be eager to debate new ones, both in relation to texts they have studied and wider ideas from the ever-changing world in which they belong.
Our team will inspire, foster and nurture a love of language and introduce our students to both the literary greats, modern classics and the writers of their future.
