In the globalised world we live in languages from a core part of communication and cultural understanding. The ability to speak more than one language (bilingual) will give students a head start. Our students are bilingual in English and Spanish and have the opportunity to select French or German when they enter secondary at Y7.
Learning another language goes far beyond just being able to communicate in that language – you learn another way of thinking, a component of language skills. Our students develop an enriched, more complex personality and an enhanced capacity for further language learning. They also have a greater openness to new cultural experiences.
