Specialist Language College
As part of our language specialism we ensure that most of our students have the opportunity to study a modern language at key stages 3 and 4.
Studying a foreign language not only enhances our students’ employment prospects but also helps them to understand and appreciate cultures and people from different parts of the world.
In addition to the normal curriculum, students at Ashlyns benefit from a wide range of international initiatives which make their education distinctive. We help them to develop their interpersonal and inter-cultural skills which are essential for success in an increasingly global economy. In recognition of this Ashlyns School holds the prestigious British Council International School Full Award. For more information visit our School awards page.
