Ethos of the Department

The learning of a new language and cultures should inspire girls to be adventurous in spirit and to embrace all that is unique about the many cultures that make up our world. Through their German lessons they will begin to understand the importance of effective and sensitive communication.

We aim to develop the ability to use German effectively for purposes of practical communication. Girls will form a sound basis of the skills, language and attitudes required for further study, work or leisure. They will be offered insight into the culture and civilisation of the country whose language we are teaching. We want our girls to enjoy the learning of German, to rise to the intellectual challenge and develop awareness for language learning. We enable our girls to achieve their full potential in examination success in German.
