UCLAN visit

13 September 2014

Twenty Year 9 students recently took part in the very popular Routes into Languages MFL enrichment event at the University of Central Lancashire. The event is designed to motivate language learners and explore the opportunities that learning other languages can open up to them. The successful event encouraged pupils to aim higher and have aspirations for higher education. Students had a taster of what university is like and had an opportunity to take part in Russian and Arabic language taster sessions and awareness workshops.

Feedback from students was very positive with over 95% rating the day as good! Jodie Ebdon said, “I thoroughly enjoyed the Russian session and the lecture at the start. I really love languages and would consider taking languages for GCSE.”
