Through the introduction of an extended school day, pupils have the opportunity to study at least two languages. They are also given the chance to attend a study visit abroad.
“The atmosphere in lessons is positive and extremely supportive. Students feel confident to admit their failings and readily seek help or offer assistance to each other. In this way, students learn from each other and develop a better understanding of the more difficult aspects of their work. Teachers have great knowledge of their students’ prior learning and use this well to plan appropriate activities.”
