Larkhall Academy

English and Literacy

The department covers a broad range of skills including literacy, the study of literature and media study. We are part of the core provision for all pupils from S1 to S5 and is a popular option for our sixth year pupils.


We offer opportunities to develop skills in reading, writing, talking and listening. We hope to foster enthusiasm for reading for enjoyment outside of school as well as providing our pupils with the support to develop the skills they need to succeed in the wider school and in whatever they choose to do once they have left Larkhall Academy.
