English study is mandatory in NSW from Kindergarten to Year 12.
Students learn about the English language through written, spoken and visual texts of increasing complexity as they progress through their schooling.
An understanding of the English language is central to how we communicate and essential for intellectual, social and emotional development.
The study of English should develop a love of literature and learning and be challenging and enjoyable. It develops skills to enable students to experiment with ideas and expression, to become active, independent and lifelong learners, to work with each other and to reflect on their learning.
In Year 11 and 12, the study of English is mandatory. Courses offered include:
English as an Additional Language or Dialect (EAL/D)
English Extension 1
English Extension 2
At St Marys Senior High School, many of these Year 11 and Year 12 subjects are on offer. Please refer to the information sheets below which outline the details of these courses.
