Modern Foreign Languages

"Language is the road map of a culture. It tells you where its people come from and where they are going."

- Rita Mae Brown

We strongly believe that the study of different languages and cultures is a vital part of the development of young people.  Through learning another language, young people acquire key skills such as teamwork, communication, problem-solving and independent thinking.

KS3 and KS4 Curriculum

In Year 7 all students will learn Spanish and French.  We place great importance on learning about a Country's culture and not just its language.  We do this through interesting and innovative lessons, extensive use of ICT and media, and the opportunity to go on trips abroad. 

At the end of Year 7, we ask pupils to choose which language they would prefer to study.  This ensures that all students are prepared to go on and succeed at GCSE in their chosen Languages.  Pupils can pick up a second language once again in Year 9 should they wish.


Results in French and Spanish are among the strongest in the school. This year in 2017, the pass rate for Spanish was 100% and 84% in French.

These are both considerably above the national average.  We continue to work tirelessly to build upon and improve these excellent results.
