Modern Foreign Languages

Welcome to the MFL Department. We believe that learning a foreign language can help students build confidence with their speaking skills, support literacy through increased understanding of grammar and provide students with a competitive edge with college and careers choices. Most importantly, we believe the ability to learn a language is a crucial skill in today's increasingly international world.

To support this, we also recognise the importance of developing cultural and international understanding. Our themes and topics are rooted in students' own experiences and interests such as sport, leisure time and future careers. At the same time, we introduce them to cultural features of the countries that they are studying. Extra-curricular activities such as trips, languages clubs, art events and celebration of European Day of Languages further encourage our students to engage with language learning and celebrate culture and diversity.

At GCSE, we follow the AQA specification in order to provide a broad understanding of the culture, countries and communities where French, German and Spanish are spoken. Our aim is to ensure that learners of all abilities have the opportunity to be open-minded global citizens who can reach their potential, whether it be at GCSE or FCSE level.
