News: Can You Help?

Posted on 16th February 2017

We are looking for parent volunteers who can speak a foreign language. This would involve ideally one or two hours a week to help our French, German and Spanish year 11s practise their speaking, conversational and pronunciation skills.
The Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and the successful applicant must provide satisfactory references and will be subject to clearance by the Disclosure & Barring Service.
If you can help, please contact Mr Verniol at the academy mverniol@theburgesshillacademy.org.uk

In a cold weekend of December, Mr Kirkby, Miss Elliott and Mr Verniol had the pleasure of taking a delightful group of German linguists, from years 9 to 11, to Cologne in Germany. In only 36 hours, they visited five Christmas markets and a small chocolate factory. The warm waffles and homemade Bratwurst helped them all to prompt their speaking in the language. A successful trip that surely will be repeated.
