The Huili Secondary English programme is designed to engage students in English language and literature and to develop not only the knowledge and skills of students but also to build more independent learners across the wider curriculum. In junior high (grades 6-8), we have created a tailor-made curriculum for our pupils to ensure language development and an understanding of literature while fostering a love of English language learning. We do this by engaging students in various texts that include fiction, non-fiction and poetry in each grade. In our bourgeoning high school, the vast majority of our students study IGCSE English as a First Language and English Literature. The two-year IGCSE course enables students to better prepare for the IBDP programme. We also ensure that, for both IGCSE and IBDP, we offer CPD to help develop further develop our teachers.
As well as preparing for IGCSE and IBDP, the English department also offers a wide range of extracurricular activities for the students where English language lies at the centre. These primarily centre around different forms of debate, and we see them as an opportunity to further enhance our students’ experience at Huili. The Huili English department’s purpose is not only to develop the language and understanding of our pupils but to better prepare them for a world beyond Huili.
We believe that through English, different cultures can be presented from different perspectives, broadening our students’ minds. As a bilingual school, we understand the importance of language and culture in our student’s futures.
