Welcome to English at QMC

Our culture and history have been shaped by literature and language for hundreds of years. Through lessons, clinics, enrichment courses , support workshops and trips English students at Queen Mary’s College are shown how to read, analyse and write about this rich heritage.

At QMC my English teacher encouraged me to enter a poem for the Simon Powell Poetry Prize 2020. I was lucky enough to be selected as one of the winners and received an invitation to an online poetry seminar which was an invaluable experience. Winning the prize helped encourage a love for poetry, both reading and writing it and this has been supported by my creative writing enrichment. – Aldworth School
