Welcome to the Languages Department. Here at Westhoughton High School we teach French from Year 7 to Year 13 and German from year 10. We have a number of skilled specialist teachers in the department.
We are all working together to inspire pupils to learn a language and discover the cultural diversity of Modern Europe. We have an established German Exchange with the Gesamtschule Paderborn-Elsen and links with the Collège Lucien Vadez
Each of the classrooms in the department is equipped with an interactive whiteboard and audio-visual facilities. We are a forward-thinking, lively and enthusiastic department, always developing new ideas for language teaching.
We are committed to giving students, regardless of ability, gender or ethnicity the opportunity to appreciate different countries and cultures in order to promote good will and to counter insularity and prejudice.
