Modern Foreign Languages

Proficiency in a foreign language can open doors to a huge range of opportunities whether in terms of future study and career options or in forming lifelong friendships. Language learning offers our students an immediately applicable skill which fosters pleasure and a sense of achievement whilst the cultural knowledge and understanding implicit in our curriculum teach the importance of valuing and respecting other cultures. Most important of all, languages are about tolerance and understanding – values which are at the heart of Catholicism.
