We would like to welcome (willkommen) you to the German Language Department at Caister Academy.

We strongly believe that due to the increasing cultural and work-related exchanges between people from different countries, it has become important to speak more than one language. There is no doubt that people who can speak more than one language have a real asset for life. Learning and knowing a foreign language does not only enrich peoples’ working life and leisure time, but it also improves peoples’ intercultural understanding and life skills. That is why we believe that all pupils should leave school having a sound knowledge of a second language.



Our aims are to bring about a passion in pupils for learning languages, to help them to realise their potential and to achieve their goals. To achieve these aims we offer language lessons which are inclusive, stimulating and enjoyable. We currently teach the German language.


The Benefits

•  Being able to learn more about countries which speak the language
•  Enhanced communication skills, allowing for improved confidence and knowledge
•  A greater opportunity of acquiring a career abroad or possibly a career within a company that has international links
•  An ability to share thoughts, ideas and opinions with a wider range of people from many different backgrounds
