Language centres

Our Language Centres in London and the North-West of England aim to promote the study of languages amongst state sector students, and enhance the pedagogy of languages teachers. We support a range of language learning through open events and workshops in partnership with a number of institutions.  

London centre for languages and cultures

The LCLC was set up in 2013 as a partnership between Westminster Academy, the University of Oxford, the Open University, and partner universities in London. Based at Westminster Academy in west London, the LCLC works with numerous secondary schools across the region to foster meaningful engagement with Modern Foreign Languages amongst students.


North west centre for languages and cultures

The NWCLC was set up in 2019 at Priestley College, Warrington, part of the TCAT (The Challenge Academy Trust). It works to strengthen the position of Modern Foreign Languages in secondary schools and sixth form colleges in the North-West region through working with the University of Oxford and Lancaster University, amongst other institutions.
