The Shenton College English Learning Area is central to our ‘Learning for Life’ philosophy. This program is designed to develop and hone literacy, enhance students’ learning in other curriculum areas, and provide them with the critical thinking abilities and communication and language skills necessary for active participation in all facets of life and society.

At Shenton, development in English is a continuing process strategically building on the language and literacy skills students have already developed, and on their growing and evolving life experiences. Through our English courses, students study, critique and discuss a wide range of material including literary and audio texts, film and television content.
