Contact with target language countries and speakers is an essential when learning a language:

  • We provide opportunities for foreign travel to foster both cultural and linguistic understanding
  • Cultural exchanges increase motivation and reinforce the relevance of the subject
  • Cultural exchanges foster personal growth and provide life experiences for young people
  • All students have access to foreign travel on an equal opportunities basis
  • Contact with target language culture and language experience need not necessarily be abroad

Examples of visits and exchanges organised by school are:

  • French exchange programme with a partner school near Strasbourg
  • French-Geography-Business trip to Brittany
  • Sixth Form residentials to Paris & South of France
  • German exchanges and residentials to Saarbr├╝cken
  • German hosting here in Market Harborough
  • Day trips to France
  • Visits to see French and German films
  • Sixth Form conferences
  • Trips to Barcelona and Southern Spain
  • Sixth form participation at Euroscola in Strasbourg (European Youth Parliament)
