We are proud to be in a unique position in the local area to be able to offer Arabic for the first time for our students. Thanks to funding awarded by The British Council and The Qatar Foundation, we are offering an entry level, extra-curricular course, which can lead to a recognised Level 1 qualification.

In addition, we are also offering this opportunity to Year 10 and Year 11 students in our partner secondary schools.  These lessons take place via Teams with our Arabic teacher and are a wonderful way for those studying a GCSE language to take on an additional language or new challenge, or equally for those who are not studying a GCSE language to learn the basics of one of the world’s most spoken languages.
