Widening Participation

Small Fry Workshops - Years 8 & 9

We also offer introductory workshops to both less and more- widely taught languages, aimed at Year 8 and 9 students. These are available for Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Romanian and Spanish.

They do not presuppose any prior knowledge and are designed to be fun, interactive and inspiring. We like to think that they will encourage students to think about taking languages at GCSE and beyond.

Summer Schools - Years 12 & 13

Run annually in June, the summer school provides A level language students (and equivalent qualifications) the opportunity to attend masterclasses that work on their advanced linguistic skills, as well as giving them a flavour of the teaching of literature, film and culture at university level.  There is also the summer challenge, which this year features Louisa Taylor from the Scandinavian Studies department.

School Visits

Our staff are always delighted to come in visit to schools and speak to Year 12 and 13 students, so please do not hesitate to get in touch if there is a particular topic that you would like us to come and speak about.
