In the MFL Department, we aim to foster our pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world around them. Immersing our pupils within the target language in the classroom and offering a range of extra-curricular activities, ensures our young language learners are prepared for their next steps in life and assists them on the path to achieve their God-given potential. In the classroom, pupils are encouraged to solve problems whilst communicating with others, expressing their ideas and thoughts thus deepening their understanding of their own identity and culture as well as that of other countries.

In Mandarin, our objective is to enable students of all abilities to develop their Chinese (Mandarin) language skills to their full potential, equipping them with the knowledge to communicate in a variety of contexts with confidence. Here, we are passionate about the benefits that learning the Chinese language can bring in the new global market and competitive world, building students communication and literacy skills and preparing them for a globalised world of work.
