Our Vision

In a fast-changing world where young people are true global citizens, our purpose is to equip students with the skills, knowledge and confidence to enable them to thrive, communicate and converse in the modern world. As described in the national curriculum our vision is to provide our learners with the skills to know how to learn a language through reinforcement and repetition and by developing secure knowledge foundations. We are dedicated to developing both linguistic skills and cultural understanding in our students, through a curriculum that encourages independent, resilient, reflective and curious learners, and ultimately inspires a love for languages.

At The Cedars Academy we teach French, one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. We believe in continuing with one language throughout KS3 and 4 so pupils can really develop their competence and have a solid base for further study, whether in French or other languages in the future.
