Key Stage 4

In Years 9, 10 and 11the majority of students follow the Edexcel GCSE course in French or Spanish.

Why study a language at GCSE? 

By taking a language at GCSE you’ll have amazing skills. A language in GCSE builds on what you’ve already learnt in Key Stage 3, you will also find out about other people, countries and cultures so it really an interesting and varied subject.

Students have regular access to small groupwork with a French or Spanish native speaker to help them prepare for the oral exams and also have the opportunity to work with Sixth Form mentors to help them gain confidence with speaking and writing.

We are currently working towards setting up a link with a school in Nice and organising a trip to visit a French school.  There is already a link with a school in Contabria, Spain.
