Aspire not to have more, but to be more.

We are a positive, proactive and energetic team who passionately believe in the value of learning about our own and other languages and cultures, not only for their usefulness but for the pleasure and insight they give young people to the world in which they live.


  1. To deepen our students’ understanding of themselves, those around them and the wider world.
