Modern Languages

The Modern Languages department has six language teachers, each with their own classroom. All MFL classrooms are equipped with an interactive whiteboard and the department also has use of a 30 PC ICT suite to support language development.

Students in years 7 and 8 learn three languages (French, German and Spanish), with all expected to take at least one language to GCSE. We offer all languages in the sixth form.

The department is committed to enriching language development and runs at least one foreign visit per year group, as well as maintaining extensive links with our international partner schools and providing a hub for students visiting London from overseas.

Implicit in the teaching and learning of languages is the use of four key skills, listening, reading, writing (including translation) and speaking. All four skills represent 25% each of the total mark at GCSE and all information relating to courses, assessment and reporting can be found by following the curriculum link.

A good bilingual dictionary for each language is an essential requirement for every student.
