The Languages Faculty at Bury Grammar School strives to increase academic potential whilst instilling a love of languages and other cultures in our pupils.
In a world where communication is key, we develop pupils speaking skills, support them in identifying language patterns and enable them to become independent learners. Pupils are encouraged to use the target language both in and out of the classroom and have regular contact with Foreign Language Assistants who nurture their linguistic abilities.
Languages lessons at BGS open a window on the wider world, offering unique opportunities to discover other traditions, cultures and political systems, and explore international arts and current affairs.
We offer French, German and Spanish to GCSE and A level. Latin is offered as a co-curriculum subject.
