Promoting Languages

“English is NOT enough”
"Together we must help Scotland’s youngsters realise that “English is enough” is a dangerously misleading myth."

Knox Academy is lucky to have a long standing connection with a French school in Aubigny, France. The success of this link is thanks to the hard work of the staff at Knox Academy and Haddington Twinning Association. Each year pupils are given the opportunity to write pen pal letters to French pupils and a trip to Aubigny forms an important part of Activities week. Haddington's influence has grown so much on this French town that is it often dubbed as "Where French men wear Kilts".
