As a Language College we aim to raise standards of achievement and the quality of teaching and learning in Modern Foreign Languages for all pupils, using this as a catalyst for whole school improvement.
We are active partners in a learning society with our local primary schools, secondary schools, further education colleges, higher education institutions, business and our community, sharing resources and developing and sharing good practice. We aim to help children to progress from primary language learning through to lifelong language learning.
We play a key role in supporting the National Languages Strategy, which aims to transform the country's capability in languages, encouraging "languages for Life" and "languages for all".
We aim to promote a learning culture which is international, technological, enterprising and vocational, and which values language learning as an activity and regards performance with languages as a key skill for UK citizens of the 21st century.
We value and support the community languages of our pupils, and provide young people with the skills needed to progress into employment, further training or higher education according to their individual needs.
We aim to raise participation rates in Modern Foreign Languages, and enhance language learning opportunities for our pupils and for the local learning community.
As leading practitioners we share our growing expertise with other languages colleges and with national and international networks of schools to promote excellence and innovation.
