About the Course

We teach French, Spanish or Mandarin during lesson time and a number of other languages are available as extra-curricular subjects. Students who speak other languages at home will have the opportunity to take an additional GCSE in year 9 or 10.

Our languages curriculum aims to instil in students a love and curiosity of language learning and an appreciation for languages in an increasingly globalised society. We aim to promote diversity and tolerance by gaining an insight into the culture and civilisation of the countries where the language is spoken. It is also by learning about other societies and cultures that students will gain a greater understanding of themselves and the world around them, cultivating a global civic mind-set.
