About the Language College...

The school was given Specialist Status in January 2005 and launched as a Language College in September 2005.

    We are committed to:

  • Continued improvement to the quality of teaching and learning
  • Raising standards of achievement
  • Community focus in Languages
  • Liasing with local Primary Schools

Language College funding has been used for the refurbishment of classrooms and purchase of up to date technology, new staff and resources enabling:

  • French for Year 5 pupils in local primary school
  • Liaison with Briarfield Special School and some shared lessons
  • Spanish lessons for adults
  • Vocational language

Pupils celebrate language success

Pupils learning Arabic at Whitefield Fishponds Community School are celebrating their success in new nationally-recognised language test.

More than 40 students studying Arabic at the school – as well as 14 studying Urdu – have received new Asset Languages certificates recognising their skills in reading and listening in both languages.

Head of Languages Linda Button said: “Many of these pupils started learning Arabic from scratch as their second foreign language.

“The demand to learn Arabic in particular is strong here, and not just from children who speak the language at home.

“Students enjoy the challenge of something different and some see it as an opportunity for their future careers.

“We are thrilled that our students have succeeded in these new tests and proud of their achievements.”

Ongoing Development..

During the summer of 2005 six specialist language rooms were fitted with Promethean interactive whiteboards.

  • Sixty laptops with ICT support allow several classes at one time access to latest technology and independent learning

  • The College has 7 full time and 2 part time specialist language teachers, also there are 3 Foreign Language Assistants (2 French, 1 German)

  • Lessons are taught in French, German, Urdu and Arabic. The focus on community languages has meant the introduction of Panjabi and Somali, also conversational Spanish for Adults
  • The appointment of a Primary Liaison Teacher, who teaches French once a week to Year 5 pupils at Oldbury Court, St Matthias and Dr Bells, Whitehall, Begbrook and May Park Primary Schools

Vocational languages…

As a Specialist Language College we see this as the way forward. Pupils, whatever their level, should be enabled to go into the World of Work equipped with a language.

Community Languages..

These are a main focus with the recent introduction of Panjabi and Somali as well as Urdu and Arabic
