Purpose of Study

Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching should enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. It should also provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in the original language. Language teaching should provide the foundation for learning further languages, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries.

ChatterBOX English Academy

¡BUENOS DIAS!  Students from ChatterBOX English Academy in Madrid spend time in Warrington every Summer term for two weeks, staying with host families with children from St. Gregory’s. 


Our students are there to improve their English and during their stay they will attend school as a pupil at St. Gregory’s.  We believe that it is a fantastic opportunity for all involved to meet new friends and to make possible future links.  Although our students are ideal to help students taking GCSE Spanish, we have lots of students aged from 12-16 interested in a visit to Warrington so all ages are welcome!
