The outstanding English course at Copperfield College inspires students to become lifelong readers, confident writers and articulate speakers. Beginning with an exemplary reading course at year 7, students learn the thinking skills to comprehend and understand a range of text types. We instill a love of reading and writing through visiting authors, poetry incursions and writing competitions. Furthermore, we pride ourselves on an engaging and outstanding library.

From years 7 to 12, teachers work in partnerships with students to reflect on data, set goals and to apply reading and writing strategies. Our culture of regular timed writing, building stamina and revising work, sets students up for success for VCE and VCAL.
