Modern Foreign Languages

“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head.  If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart”.  (Nelson Mandela)

Ever-expanding communication technology, increased travel opportunities and changing flexibility in the job market have resulted in the world becoming a much smaller place. It is crucial that we can speak with and understand each other.

Our vision for language learning is to provide vibrant and well-resourced lessons which instil a passion and curiosity for language learning and enable pupils to access employment, leisure and travel opportunities beyond the confines of the Anglo-American world.

Building on the attributes of language study at Key Stages 3 and 4, A Level language study will contribute immensely to the forming of the well-rounded, forward looking European citizen who can enjoy increased opportunities in the employment market and in leisure and travel.

An A Level GCE in French or German will teach you to communicate in and understand higher level language and learn about varied and interesting aspects of the societies in which the language is spoken.
