​The English Faculty at Upper Coomera State College aspires to instil in students a thorough capacity to understand texts and a joyful appreciation of the aesthetics of the English Language.

We aim to create enthusiastic learners who are progressively independent, confident and have the initiative to develop and consolidate their knowledge and understanding of English and literacy.
