Modern Foriegn Languages

Why do we study a modern foreign language?

Studying a language is an opportunity for all students to develop their communication skills and broaden their horizons. It is a unique opportunity to grow as a person as it improves cultural awareness and provides access to richer experiences when travelling.

Through the study of a language, our students develop a better understanding of other cultures from around the world, whether this be based around festivals, traditions, food, music, geography and much more. To inspire our students to want to know more about the world they live in is a central focus of our curriculum area.

We are committed to equipping our students with the language skills and confidence necessary to communicate with people from different countries. Students develop all four language skills; listening, speaking, reading and writing.  Pupils learn how to combine phonics, vocabulary and grammar (the three pillars of language learning).

In Year 7 all students begin studying Spanish and continue to do so until Year 9. In Year 9 pupils choose their GCSE options and are encouraged to continue studying Spanish to GCSE level.
