CurriculumModern Foreign Languages

"Languages are becoming more important in modern life and you will acquire the necessary skills to take you forward into the 21st Century"  


Year 7 and 8 close open

A Modern Foreign Language gives the pupils the opportunity to appreciate different countries, cultures, communities and people.

Learning languages gives students opportunities to develop their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills and to express themselves with increasing confidence, independence and creativity.

The skills which are taught in Year 7 and 8 will prepare them for GCSE, where they will extend their linguistic capability in listening, speaking and spoken interaction and they will develop their capacity and independence in reading and writing for a range of purposes and audiences. They will write essays, give presentations on topics which interest them and take part in discussions and role plays.

Through Modern Foreign Languages students will not only learn language skills but they will be encouraged to develop literacy, numeracy, ICT and independent learning skills.
