Stamford School - Beginners German Course (St Gilberts School)

Over the four week course students learn to say basic things in German. Each week a different aspect of German culture is dealt with especially in the run up to Christmas, Halloween etc.



Promoting German and showing language opportunities at SES.  Students in Y5 and 6 in local primary schools as German is not offered in most primary school.  Primary schools should offer foreign languages but in most cases this is restricted to French and/or Spanish.



We took part in the outreach programme at SHS in 2012 and found that one session was too little to do anything meaningful. We therefore decided to offer a short course. It started in November 2013.


Use of the language lab as the children enjoy it.  IT have been very supportive in ensuring everything works properly.


Pupil Involvement

9 and 10 year olds.
