Foreign Language Leader Award

Under the auspices of Sports Leaders UK, Ballyclare High School is the first school in Northern Ireland to offer the Foreign Language Leader Award for pupils in Year 10.

The award programme, provided as part of our extensive extra-curricular provision in Modern Languages, allows pupils to develop their leadership, communication and motivational skills. Pupils work together with teachers and language assistants to learn new languages, teach languages to younger pupils in our school and to connect with our community by teaching basic French, German and Spanish to pupils in local primary schools. In addition, pupils must organise a European festival for the whole school community.

On successful completion of the award, pupils receive recognition from Sports Leaders UK. They become Language Ambassadors and  promote the importance of French, German and Spanish throughout the school.
