Heathcote are delighted to announce that we have formed a languages link with a local primary school, Chase Lane, also in Chingford. Pupils from Chase Lane visit Heathcote and take part in languages lessons provided by our teaching staff. Ms Senior, Head of Modern Foreign Languages, hopes to expand the scheme to other schools in light of the positive feedback below;


'Finding quality French provision is never easy in a primary setting. Forging a fantastic link with Heathcote secondary has been invaluable. Heathcote provide fully qualified language teachers which is a rare luxury. Our children now experience a range of French lessons that incorporate speaking and listening as well as writing. The resources used provide a wonderful transition between the two schools which a large proportion of our year 6 children go up to. In addition our children have been to the secondary school and taken part in other languages such as Spanish. We are very lucky to have made such links. Magnifique!’
