Welcome to
the Arabic department

The Middle East is undoubtedly impacting our lives on a daily basis, what better time to understand what lies behind the many headlines we read in the papers. Arabic is taught as an enrichment subject during Lower Sixth. The course aims to give you an introduction to the language (speaking and writing) as well as an appreciation of the rich culture and political background.
