Learning a foreign language is an investment that lasts a lifetime. Not only that, but it is a passport to other cultures and a world filled with new experiences, friendships and opportunities. Children begin learning French in the Pre-Prep with specialist teachers through stories, songs and nursery rhymes. This early approach pays dividends in the Prep School where lessons become more structured, focusing on the key elements of listening, speaking, reading and writing. Children have opportunities to explore other languages, such as Spanish, as part of our extra-curricular programme and Latin is also introduced into the curriculum in Year 5 and taught to Common Entrance level.
