Travel the globe

The Language Department aim to foster an enthusiasm for languages as well as an interest in the countries they are spoken in so organise a number of trips and exchanges for students.


We work with the Bristol-Bordeaux programme to enable students to take part in a homestay programme in France.


Our links with the Kopernikus School in Germany began in 2008 and the first exchange took place in 2012.


We organise biennial trips to Russia to help girls develop their language skills and gain a deeper cultural insight into this fascinating country.


We have links with a language school in Málaga, which students in Years 10 and above have the opportunity to visit. 

We also run annual exchange programmes to Australia and New York

We began our exchange programme with Pymble Ladies' College in Sydney, Australia, in 2009. Since then, each year, a number of Year 9 girls have spent a month 'down under' before welcoming their exchange sisters back to the UK.

While at Pymble, the girls are fully integrated into the school, which includes wearing the school uniform and studying subjects such as Agriculture and Aboriginal Studies.  Pymble was recently named in 'Five of the Top Schools in the World', a list compiled by The Good Schools Guide International of schools offering boarding outside the UK.

We also have links with the Emma Willard School in Troy, New York and enjoy regular staff and student exchanges.  Lessons are attended, observed and taught, and the students who visit are expected to throw themselves into life at ‘Emma’.
