Information for Primary Schools

Our school works closely with primary experts in the Widening Participation team to offer a range of experiences to primary school pupils. Our two main offerings are the Modern Foreign Languages Learning Journey and the American Studies Discovery day, both of which provide a unique experience for pupils who are involved. We can also offer bespoke activities to local schools on request, such as mini lectures, campus visits and library tours.

ACS Family Discovery Day 2016

Modern Foreign Languages Learning Journey

We are dedicated to engaging primary pupils with the ideas of language study, overseas travel and Higher Education. This project aims to help achieve this goal by placing undergraduate language students in Primary schools, enabling them to build relationships with pupils and share their love of learning languages. The student will then keep in contact with the school during their year abroad, sharing their overseas experience and showing how modern languages can be put into practice.

American Studies Discovery Day

From the history of Native North Americans to the American Civil War, American and Canadian Studies has a huge amount to offer to pupils of all ages, including those at primary school. The American Studies Discovery Day is an opportunity for pupils to come and discover all about these incredible countries and cultures with the help of undergraduate student experts. Pupils will have the opportunity to learn about the civil rights movement and how this can still impact on us today.
