Welcome to Dalriada’s English Department

“KNOWLEDGE IS A WEAPON…ARM YOURSELF WELL BEFORE YOU RIDE FORTH TO BATTLE.”

Introduction

The English Department at Dalriada is committed to the provision of a stimulating and supportive environment in which both pupils and staff enjoy their work, can be proud of their achievements and are not afraid to take risks.
Our English classes are rarely quiet for long. Pupils are encouraged to join in discussions, read aloud, perform, make presentations and ask questions.
They are also expected to take responsibility for their own work and to respect the needs and opinions of others.
Our intention is to equip pupils to read, write, speak and listen effectively and confidently in whatever situations they find themselves now and in the future.
