Come and study languages in the Sixth Form

A wealth of material is available, including CDs, DVDs, magazines, newspapers, internet and radio, which will help you develop the confidence to communicate orally and in writing, in social and work related situations.   

You study a variety of topics of contemporary interests, the culture of other countries and the structure of language. We encourage and organise trips.

As more and more British firms are branching out into Europe, do not miss the opportunity to broaden your career choices, and give yourself the edge over other candidates.
