Celebrating Languages

Celebrating Modern Foreign Languages 

At The Mountbatten School, we place a high value on students' access to a rich diet of languages and cultures. Faculties host a variety of activities across the year and within the curriculum to create opportunities for our students to develop their understanding of different cultures and use their newly discovered language skills in a practical way. In recent years, MFL students have led the European Day of Languages and had bespoke career presentations directly linked to the language they study. In addition to this, we have had students qualify for the finals of the regional Spelling Bee UOS where they competed against other schools in their language of study.

In addition to the range of cultural trips on offer, the MFL department hosts an international exchange between our Year 9 and Year 10 French students and a partnership school in Colombes, France. The aim of this partnership is to create opportunities for students from both schools to foster a deeper appreciation of different cultures, create new friendships and instil their lifelong learning of languages.
