Stage 1 English is a compulsory subject and students must complete 20 credits or 2 semesters of either Stage 1 English or Stage 1 Essential English. Students who complete 20 credits of either of these subjects at C grade level will meet the Literacy requirements of the SACE. Stage 1 English will focus on all the basic English skills around responding to texts and creating texts. Each semester will also have a special intertextual study that will build students skills in comparing texts. Students critically and creatively engage with a variety of text types including novels, film, media, poetry and drama texts.
Stage 1 English can lead to continued study in any of the Stage 2 English subjects; English Literary Studies, English or Essential English.
