Madras College


During our recent Primary 7 transition days those pupils who came to the English department worked on producing their own poems. These poems were to be called "If..." and linked to their experiences at Madras College. To see a selection of these poems, please click here



The English department strives to achieve the following:  

  • Introduce pupils to texts of a lively, demanding and interesting nature. 
  • Develop language skills so that pupils can express themselves clearly and effectively. 
  • Foster imaginative, creative and expressive potential in writing. 


You can keep up to date with the department on Instagram and Twitter @madrasenglish.
