The Ashcombe as Language College
As a specialist Language College within the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust, The Ashcombe aims to:
- apply the most up to date information and communication technology to the teaching and learning of languages,
- extend opportunities for pupils to learn languages including Mandarin Chinese,
- widen the scope for all pupils to communicate directly with students overseas both through exchange visits and through the use of electronic communications.
Two multi-media rooms dedicated to the teaching of languages give the school outstanding facilities. Language and International links are not confined to the Modern Languages Department but pervade the whole curriculum.
Language College Presentation Days
The ethos of the school is such that we wish to make our work, current and developing, accessible to our partners in the Dorking 'Family of Schools' and with other interested colleagues both in the UK and further afield. Therefore to promote information exchange and dissemination, we host a number of free Language College Presentations throughout the year.
