  • Welcome to The Linden Centre

At The Linden Centre our aim is the foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world, providing an opening to other cultures. We seek to enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond both in speech and in writing.  Pupils will experience lessons of French in KS2 and will utilise the skills learned and expand up on these by adding to their linguistic repertoire through learning German in KS3.

We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in the original language.

Our aim is to create and develop enthusiastic and successful learners. Students who study languages become curious about the world around them and enjoy learning about how that world is shaped by languages and the people who use them. Our team want to inspire, foster and nurture a love of foreign languages and a greater respect for the cultural appreciation of the countries in which they are spoken.

Building Linguistic ability amongst future medics, engineers, politicians, journalists, entrepreneurs, lawyers etc serves to make them stand out from the crowd and succeed in a demanding and competitive workplace.

We hope to share our passion for languages and encourage the discovery of new cultures and countries.

We truly believe that learning and using foreign languages leads to mutual understanding, to a sense of global citizenship and to personal fulfilment; the ability to understand and communicate in another language is a lifelong skill for education, employment and leisure in this country and throughout the world.
