Independent Co-Educational Day & Boarding School for Ages 2 - 18. The Best of British Boarding by the Sea.


The Languages Department at Saint Felix School aims for pupils to understand and appreciate different countries, cultures, people and communities through the study of a foreign language.

Pupils learn the structures of the target language, exploring the similarities and differences between the foreign language and English, or another language.

Pupils are able to use languages effectively for the purposes of practical communication and develop their listening, reading and memory skills as well as improving the accuracy of their written work. The ability to speak another language is a sought after skill in today’s competitive job market.

We have high expectations and provide suitable challenges. Learning takes place in an environment of mutual respect between teachers and learners. Lessons are stimulating, inclusive and use a variety of teaching and learning activities and strategies to meet the diverse needs of all Saint Felix pupils. We also aim to give pupils the confidence to make appropriate use of ICT facilities to support their learning. Specialist online Language resources are used to consolidate and develop pupils’ learning.

Our department policies support the overall vision and policies of the School.
