In English, we value the ability to create confident communicators, imaginative thinkers and informed citizens who can thrive in and with the world around them.

At , students have a strong sense of belonging when entering an English classroom. Each day, they are immersed in a supportive environment that both values and constructively challenges their viewpoints, that assists them to critically engage with a range of texts, and explore ethical and global issues within real-world and fictional settings.

In English, we believe that students must be taught how to think, not what to think. As a result, Lakes Learners become students who actively engaged in the learning process and who can make their thinking visible. Our students develop their understanding and appreciation of the power of the English language and the ability to play with words, paint with words, and persuade with words.
