Independent Co-Educational Day School
Learning a language at school is a long-term investment – for you, your career and for society. Languages and exposure to different cultures broaden your horizons; they open doors to the person you are going to be. Furthermore, employers consider language skills to be vital assets in today's competitive global environment.
The MFL Department at Leehurst Swan is vibrant and supportive. We teach French from the Pre-Prep upwards. KS2 pupils also have the opportunity to learn Spanish or German in the Summer Term and almost all Senior pupils take at least one foreign language to IGCSE level. In addition to our dedicated MFL classrooms, we also make use of the two ICT suites where pupils can enjoy the many online resources that are available, for example to improve their listening skills. To complement the lessons, we also run a programme of events such as food-tasting and plays, as well as trips abroad to France, Germany and Spain - always a highlight!
We are passionate about the importance of learning languages and we look forward to welcoming you to our Department.
