As well as promoting the study of languages, literacy and other cultures, the Language Department at Queensferry High School also aims to teach pupils about the benefits of having multi-lingual skills in today’s world, whether at home or abroad.

We want to encourage our students to widen their horizons through language learning, and to think of themselves as part of a diverse global community. We also aim to help them understand their important role as citizens in an international, multi-lingual world.

We aim to enhance students' ability to communicate with others in a foreign language and to develop their literacy skills to enable them to express with confidence their thoughts, feelings and ideas, and to arm them with the knowledge of how language works.
