From Foundation 1 to Year 6, a love of learning languages is embedded into school life. We believe that providing an education in language and culture will give our pupils more opportunities to develop in today’s broader multicultural society, not just through their educational journeys, but also when they enter the working world.
We believe that through languages we can gain enjoyment, pride and a sense of achievement by adopting a ‘have a go’ attitude to learning.
Through our Language of the Month initiative, our pupils are introduced to a new language from around the world. They are given opportunities to learn how to pronounce common phrases and communicate in the selected language, whilst learning more about the culture and lifestyle of the country.
All classes learn Spanish from Foundation 1 up to Year 6 once a week. From Year 3, the Prep Department are introduced to French. We are currently the only independent school offering both French and Spanish once a week for Years 3 to 6.
