Welcome to Mosslands English Department! 

English is a crucial subject for your future.  Therefore, as a core curriculum subject, you will have a 50 minute English lesson every day.  One of these lessons will be a reading lesson, in the school library.   

Here at Mosslands literature is our passion and is at the heart of our curriculum.  It is our aim to promote and foster a life-long love for literature and readers for life.  Our team of English specialists will encourage, nurture and equip you with the necessary language skills to be a successful participant in life beyond school.
