Languages at Bewdley include French and Spanish as courses of study which all students follow for one tenth of their curriculum time in the lower school. The school is also exploring the potential for exposure to other United Nations Languages through international partnerships in the Middle East and China. Overseas visits support our language learning and the school regularly has visiting students from around Europe study alongside our Sixth Formers.

The school also offers both subjects at Advanced Level with high quality individual support from team of specialist teachers skilled in these and other languages.
