Modern Languages

The Modern Languages faculty is a lively team that has a real passion for sharing our love of languages with all our  students from Years 7 – 11! All students learn French in Years 7‐9.  They study Spanish in Years 8 and 9.  Students will  then continue with their choice of one of these languages to GCSE level during Key Stage 4. No matter what career  path our students plan to follow, speaking a second language will give them a real advantage, not to mention a  valuable insight into other cultures.
