Modern Foreign Languages

The Modern Foreign Languages department is committed to offering all learners a variety of opportunities to explore and understand a range of cultural and social issues through the study of French and Spanish. The department endeavours to make learning languages fun and meaningful, providing students with many opportunities for collaboration and independent work in the classroom. Throughout the language curriculum, the focus is on developing students’ skills in the four key areas of speaking, listening, reading and writing along with providing a solid grounding in the structures and patterns of the language. Students are encouraged to use the target language as much as possible and they are exposed to authentic language each time they enter the MFL classrooms.  This has created a department with a proven track record of success including exceptional results at GCSE.
