Literature is where I go to explore the highest and lowest places in human society and in the human spirit, where I hope to find not absolute truth but the truth of the tale, of the imagination and of the heart.

Salman Rushdie

The English team at Tudor Grange Samworth Academy are dedicated to the study of great works of literature and the crafting of exceptional and original writing. We use our collective expertise and knowledge as a department to inspire and motivate our pupils to academic excellence. In English we expose our pupils to a wide range of quality authors, playwrights, poets and historical contexts from the medieval period to present day. We endeavour to give our pupils the opportunities to analyse, infer and critique in order to prepare them for a future in academia and a firm understanding of ways in which to engage with and interpret the world around them.
