“To have a second language is to possess a second soul” - Charlemagne
At Prince William School we are very privileged in currently being able to offer French and Spanish from Key Stage 3 through to Key Stage 5 and from September 2016, German in Key Stage 3, focusing on the four key skills of listening, reading, writing and speaking. Our students have positive experiences in their lessons and we strive to develop a love of foreign languages and culture through exposure to authentic materials and the teaching of the language through a variety of topics relevant to young people in the world today.
Our mission, as teachers of modern foreign languages, is to arm our students with the confidence and skills to use their linguistic skills and knowledge outside of the classroom, both at home and abroad. Prince William School is fortunate to have highly qualified and experienced staff, coming from a wide variety of backgrounds, from all corners of the globe; passionate about the languages they teach and the countries in which the languages are spoken, the staff keep up-to-date with what is going on linguistically, culturally and politically and are therefore able to keep the languages real and relevant for their students in the classroom.
We aim, through our teaching, to develop both linguistic skills in the target language as well as highly sought after employability skills and to equip our students with the wherewithal to step confidently into the outside world in order to allow them to seize every opportunity which is offered to them.
