The English Department at Lady Margaret School is dynamic, innovative and creative. As teachers, we have a passion for teaching our subject: We wish to foster in the girls an enthusiasm for reading and love of literature while ensuring that we equip them for the rigorous demands of external examinations and the challenges of life beyond school. 

The Department has high academic standards. We promote the articulate use of both spoken and written English. Our schemes of work are designed to give pupils the cultural capital needed to succeed in later life, whatever their background. We believe in the power of language to promote social mobility and develop individual thinking. We also believe that English lessons should be a space for exploring and challenging new ideas and ways of thinking. Our passion for our subject runs through everything we do and we strive to pass this on to the girls we teach. 

The Department aims to give each girl at LMS the same consistently high standard of English education. As such, all girls will study the same unit of work at the same time within their year group and are taught in mixed ability classes throughout their time at the school.
