Language is the most important life tool you will ever have. Here at Lytton, the English Department will help your language skills develop whether for:

  • higher academic pursuit
  • daily activities
  • or even interest’s sake… we have a programme for you!

In the Junior school, we have practical classes tailored to meet individual class needs. Each is designed to give you core practical language skills and prepare you for Senior level class work. Students will become (if not already) fluent in Google Drive and Chrome Technologies as the expected platform for their English portfolios.

From Year 11, opt into whichever English course best meets your needs. With two programmes offered at each of Levels One and Two, all offering Achievement Standards, there is sure to be a class for you. At Level Three, if you still want more, choose whichever of the two courses best suits your learning style.

English at Lytton is taught by dedicated, skilled teachers who pride themselves on going the extra mile for their students.

Housed in Raukumara building, the department is continually updating resources and staff skills to meet the ever-changing demands of the digital world we live in.
