The English faculty consists of teachers with wide ranging experience, enabling us to deliver the full spectrum of English courses to meet the learning needs and interests of all the students at Illawarra Sports High School. We offer the entire range of HSC courses, from Extension 2, where talented writers compose their own original manuscripts for the HSC; to English Studies, where students who are not looking for University entrance can engage in consolidating their core literacy skills, and access wide range of dynamic literary texts.
In English, we strive to encourage all students to follow their passion and deepen their learning by offering extra- curricular activities. We coach the debating teams and talented public speakers for a range of competitions. The English Faculty and Illawarra Sports High School has provided the opportunity for Advanced English students to attend a six month creative writing course with the Illawarra Writers Centre, by subsidising part of the cost.
