Languages

Language colleges were introduced in 1995. Over 380 schools became designated specialist language colleges, including 18 schools combining languages with another specialism and over 100 schools that have languages as a second specialism.

Specialist language colleges raise standards of achievement and the quality of teaching and learning in languages for all learners. The specialism acts as a key lever to raise standards across the whole school. They work in partnership with other schools and the wider community.
