Languages

The Foreign Languages department seeks to stimulate students’ curiosity and interest in language learning which lasts a lifetime.  It aims to enable all students across the ability range to realise their potential and develop competence in one or more foreign languages. Our students are taught the importance of giving their personal best in a learning environment which is both challenging and very rewarding.

In addition to acquiring language for the purposes of practical communication, pupils are also taught the importance of grammatical knowledge to allow them to manipulate language and communicate with an increasing degree of accuracy and sophistication.  Wider qualities such as politeness, perseverance, initiative and independence are also fostered through the study of foreign languages.

In addition, pupils are given an invaluable insight into the countries whose languages are being studied, thereby developing positive attitudes to foreign cultures and societies.
