The VDSS was founded in the early nineties by members of German Saturday Schools in the London area. We operate as a voluntary organisation, relying on parents of the individual Saturday Schools to extend their commitment.
The English education system does no longer require pupils to study foreign languages beyond the age of 14, and the general opinion about the importance of learning foreign languages is divided.
As Saturday School Association, we strongly believe that being able to communicate in more than one language is ever more important in the multi-cultural society of today's Britain as well as in today's globalised world. We therefore support families who have decided to go down the often difficult and frustrating path of bringing up their children bilingually.
