Modern Foreign Languages

Languages

Welcome

The Modern languages department currently offers French to all pupils at all levels of ability. We have two full-time staff and one part time who all speak French.

All pupils learn a foreign language in year 7.  The same language is taught to the whole year group across the key stage.

The department has previously enjoyed trips to both France and Germany, which have proved very popular with pupils.

KS3 Information

Pupils this year are enjoying the new curriculum that we have developed as a department. They are learning to be able to speak and write about their family, television, music and film and are developing their knowledge of French culture. We have included opportunities for pupils to practise translation and study French literature, both of which are important for the new GCSE.

Pupils thoroughly enjoyed the International Day of Languages delivered as an ACE day in Y9. They enjoyed a theatre production delivered in French, cookery sessions, taster sessions of Greek, Mandarin Chinese and Russian and participated in Art and Technology sessions with an international theme. A variety of online resources are used both in school and for homework to complement teaching.

KS4 Information

Pupils follow the AQA course and are assessed in listening, reading, speaking and writing in terminal exams at the end of Y11. Each element makes up 25% of the course.

Next Steps

Languages at A/AS level are offered at most of our local post-16 providers. Many employers view a qualification in Languages as proof of adaptability, flexibility and an open mind- all of which are pre-requisites in today’s ever changing employment market.
