Modern Foreign Languages
The Modern Languages Department aims to stimulate pupils’ interest and enjoyment in learning foreign languages. We look to enable pupils to communicate effectively in French and/or German and to become aware of and interested in other countries and cultures. Language learning takes place inside and outside the classroom, with a number of foreign visits offered to pupils.

“I decided to continue my study of foreign languages because it broadens my education and will open up career opportunities abroad”.
“French is really good because it opens up a lot of opportunities, like the work experience trip to Lille. Languages are really important as they allow us to communicate with people, and I am looking forward to studying languages after sixth form”.
“Studying languages is a great way to not only improve knowledge and understanding of another culture, but it builds self-confidence for communicating in your own language”.
“Since studying languages, I have gained a new set of skills. It’s a great way to make new friends in other countries and learn about other cultures. It is useful when on holiday in a foreign country”.
