The English Department


A diversified and dynamic Department, it is the mandate of the members of this Department, that "English is for life," much like that text which was a mainstay of the English curriculum in all High Schools. Our students enter at Grade 7 and are exposed to a curriculum that includes English Language, Literature and Orals.

It is the goal of the Department to embrace the varied literatures of the world from Pan-Africa to the Caribbean. Literature as a life skill helps to show our students that the world is a multi-leveled place; a place where all people are the same; for as Shakespeare said, "All the world's a stage and every player his part." (Macbeth)

We have an over 90% success rate in both Language and Literature at CSEC. At the 6th Form level, we also offer Communication Studies as well as Literature. Our staff is dedicated to molding our students; lives as well as their minds.
