Modern Foreign Languages

We offer a wide variety of different languages from French to Mandarin, Spanish to Italian. Nearly all girls will achieve an A or A* at GCSE or International GCSE and many choose to continue to A level and beyond.

As a department we partake in various public competitions where our girls excel via their knowledge of languages. Building on our already strong reputation for debating in English, girls have been selected to take part in national Spanish and French debates. There is also a weekly News Club and a Modern Languages Society. The department organises study holidays and exchanges in cities such as Beijing, Granada and Montpellier.It alsoprides itself on the use of two multimedia virtual language laboratories and a library which areemployed not only during lessons but also for clubs, research and revision.

Wycombe Abbey is fortunate to have strong links with the local community and to have, over a number of years formed close relationships with language tutors. As a result, as well as offering private tuition in French, Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese, Arabic, Hindi, Russian and Chinese, we are able to offer tuition in any number of other languages, including Modern Greek, Portuguese, Dutch, Turkish and Thai.
