The study of English is central to the learning and development of all young Australians.

The English department at EHS is committed to the creation of confident communicators, imaginative thinkers and informed citizens through our rigorous 7-12 English program.

Junior English is studied by all students from Year 7 to Year 10. The subject matter in each of the modules studied each term is arranged to mirror the format of the HSC and its focus. Each program offers a range of teaching and learning pathways which allow all students to access the curriculum at their level.

Public Speaking

Make your voice heard - our public speaking programs aim to build real-life skills in presenting and speaking to audiences.

Wide Reading

Developing lifelong readers by encouraging students to follow their passions and read their favourite series and topics. In particular, Engadine High School fosters the value and practice of wide reading through the Premier’s Reading Challenge, which is facilitated by the English Faculty and Library for all Years 7 and 8 students.


We embrace one of the hardest challenges of high school – writing essays. Our students become confident and fluent writers. The skills that they learn in English about the composition of essays and expositional pieces are crucial to success in other high school subjects, and beyond.


We feature a literature-rich scope and sequence that aims to challenge students with the best of our cultural traditions.


Students can participate in debating skills workshops and represent the school in competitions - and learn to argue their point!
