Modern Foreign Languages

We strive to enable students to achieve the highest standards of which they are capable.

As well as skills in learning vocabulary, using dictionaries and other resources, students are provided with a solid grounding in the structures and patterns of the language through a range of contexts.

Our aim is to develop language learners who are enthusiastic about their learning; able to communicate in another language, and capable of working independently.
