Language Taster Sessions

We would like to congratulate all students and staff who participated and helped make the language taster sessions a big success. People enjoyed practising a wide range of languages: Russian, Arabic, Mandarin, Polish, Punjabi and Urdu.  Everyone made a great effort to help us celebrate language diversity here at College.

Equally, Year 7 students have created some acrostic poems to celebrate the European Day of Languages and we are happy to say there are some very creative and high quality poems that will be rewarded during the following week.
