As a faculty, we firmly believe that language and literacy are of personal, social and economic importance. Our ability to use language - both our native language and foreign languages - lies at the centre of the development and expression of our emotions, our thinking, our learning and our sense of personal identity. Language is itself a key aspect of our culture and of learning about other cultures. Both departments focus on developing an understanding of the structures of language, and the development of language skills in reading, writing, talking and listening


Throughout the BGE, all pupils will study both English and French. Towards the end of S3 pupils will also have an opportunity to study Spanish. In the Senior Phase we offer courses in English from National 3 level to Advanced Higher and in French and Spanish from National 3 to Higher.
