I've just decided i want to study engineering at degree level. I do maths, biology, chemistry and english lit/lang. Can i still do so with these subjects?

Depends on the university and the specific course really. For mechanical engineering or aeronautical engineering, generally speaking you need physics. For chemical engineering for most universities you need maths and chemistry OR physics - and chemical engineering is awesome
But look on a few university websites and see what they ask for to study a particular engineering course

What sort of engineering? There are a good dozen fields which deal with different problems and require different skills. Maths will be important, the rest will depend on the field. You'd be very well set up for a chemical/bio engineering role but at a disadvantage for mechanically based courses (mechanical, automotive, aerospace, civil, etc). For those, having physics would be ideal.

As mentioned, it really depends on the university and their entry requirements. For some they only care that you have maths. Others may want maths + physics, or maths + a science (which you would have). I did maths, product design technology, electronics and physics before going into mechanical engineering - I use skills from each of those subjects on pretty much a daily basis. I even use a tiny bit of chemistry knowledge when it comes to calculating gas compositions.
