In Key Stage 3 Languages we strive to foster an interest in and understanding of other cultures in the world. Students are encouraged to express themselves in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. They are encouraged to use the target language spontaneously in the classroom and are taught to read authentic texts, to transcribe and translate.
In Year 7, students are introduced to French as a Modern Foreign Language. The highest achieving students are then given opportunity to additionally study Spanish in Year 8, with a look to be offered both at GCSE.
