GCSE Modern Foreign Languages
All pupils are expected to follow a Modern Foreign Language course in French, German or Spanish.
Language study brings many benefits, such as building practical skills, developing intellect, and teaching students how to learn. Language study broadens experiences and encourages critical reflection, improving knowledge of students’ own language, whilst exposing them to modes of thought outside of their native language. It also teaches and encourages respect for others and ultimately makes students a better candidate for work and promotion.
A Level Modern Foreign Languages
Students will build on the skills learnt at GCSE and go on to gain a profound understanding of their chosen language, as well as a greater cultural awareness of the countries and communities where they are spoken. Communication skills will improve, as well as the ability to appreciate the ideas of other people. Equally importantly, students will reflect on current social, cultural and political issues. A foreign language complements any other A level subject and provides a sound base for further study
