Modern Foreign Languages

Languages are part of the cultural richness of our society and the world in which we live and work. Learning languages contributes to a mutual understanding between people, a sense of global citizenship and personal fulfillment. Students learn to appreciate different countries, cultures, communities and people and, by making comparisons, they gain insight into their own culture and society.

The ability to understand and communicate in another language is a lifelong skill for education, employment and leisure in this country and throughout the world. Learning languages develops listening, speaking, reading and writing skills and to encourages young people to express themselves with confidence, independence and creativity. It also helps to build communication skills, an understanding of the structure of language and can support the development of literacy skills in a student’s own language.

Internationalism is an important part of the Haygrove School ethos.

At Haygrove, students study French, German or Spanish in years 7, 8 and 9, giving them maximum continuity in preparation for studying at GCSE level.

We organise a wide range of international trips and visits (including an exchange programme) for students from Year 8 onwards and offer after-school language clubs depending on demand.
