Welcome to Modern Foreign Languages

Our aims

  • To share our passion for other people’s language and culture
  • To motivate students to want to know more about languages
  • To give students an opportunity to rise above the rest in this extremely competitive world.

Our curriculum

All students in Year 7 & 8 study either French or Spanish. Students are encouraged to continue with the language and follow a GCSE course until the end of Year 11 as part of the Ebacc curriculum. In addition to either French or Spanish, students are given the opportunity to engage with GCSE level qualifications relating to their first language where this is not English so that these skills are formalised, certificated and recognised by employers.

Assessment

All the way through their language studies, students are assessed on 4 skills (Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing).

At KS3, teachers report on a combined national curriculum level for all students. This level is based on a series of assessments conducted in class.

At the end of year 11 students usually sit 2 examinations and complete 4 pieces of controlled assessments (2 orals and 2 written pieces).

Homework

All students are set homework in line with academy policy.
