Welcome to the Tauranga Boys’ College English Department.
English is the study, use, and enjoyment of the English language and literature written in the English language.
In English, students learn to break apart the literature and language of others in order to understand the power that language has to enrich and shape their lives.
By understanding how language works, students are then able to make good language choices in a range of areas in their own lives to achieve their goals.
