  • explore their personal identity and perspective, developing an understanding of how their voice and the voices of others contribute to the current local and global narrative.
  • develop a love and appreciation of literature, write like writers and engage openly in discussion.
  • confidently own an educated moral viewpoint, with an understanding of equality, inclusion and tolerance.
  • Move on to the next stage with a broad range of equitable opportunities  available to them
