As a fully bilingual school we celebrate language and the natural linguistic skills children have. We support children in learning both English and Spanish, enabling them to succeed academically and socially while maintaining and celebrating their cultural identity and home language.

When children are educated as bilingual speakers (either English and Spanish, or other languages) we encourage children to succeed academically and socially while maintaining and celebrating their cultural identity and home language.
This model of inclusivity allows children to acquire language skills, learning with and alongside their peers.
Our specialist language teachers provide differentiated learning instruction and individual support for students, helping children acquire both content and language throughout the curriculum.
Each child is unique and will process new language skills at a different pace. This depends on their mother tongue, their development and fluency in their first language, exposure to a language rich environment, their attitude and motivation, which all impact a student’s learning.
