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 and well informed learners who are progressively independent, confident and have the initiative to develop and consolidate their knowledge and understanding of English and literacy. In turn, students of English will be inspired to make valuable and worthwhile contributions to society. Our English teachers seek to lead by example in modelling outstanding literacy and passion for the appreciation of texts.
