Modern Foreign Language

In the Modern Foreign Language department, we aim to promote language confidence and skills for real-world purposes as well as academic ones.

Successful language learning engenders cultural and social understanding and empathy. Our students are offered opportunities to practise their language skills in context and learn more about other countries through an extensive and interactive programme. Modern languages skills are a pre-requisite in today’s professional job market and we promote an advanced study of languages, both as a specialisation as well as alongside other combination of subjects.
