York St John Communities Centre

Community Language School

Hosted via the York St John Communities Centre.

Established in September 2022, the Community Language School offers interactive, activity-based classes in languages other than English to children and adolescents.

The 3 founding principles of the School are:

  1. Enabling knowledge exchange across volunteers, families, the School Leads, and the wider academic community
  2. Provision of professional development opportunities for our volunteers
  3. Conducting impactful research on attitudes as well as the language policies and practices of our families
