We aim to develop interest and enjoyment in other languages for the purposes of practical communication as well as develop an awareness of the nature of language and language learning.

We seek to develop positive attitudes towards speakers of other languages and to develop contacts abroad. The Department is committed to providing a foundation for future language studies in the interests of lifelong learning. At present the dept offers French and Spanish and Latin languages, with a lunch time club offering Mandarin. 

Resources and Facilities

The Department is currently accommodated in three classrooms each with an Interactive Whiteboard as well as laptops at our disposal and a large bank of textual and audio-visual resources to maximise student attainment.
