We offer a twice weekly homework club to help our students with language learning or the opportunity to use our ICT suite to practice online. At Key Stage Four students are able to attend our lunchtime Exam Clinic, in order to prepare for their GCSE MFL exams. We hold a French Film Club once a week to promote extra- curricular MFL learning.
For this information please contact the Head of Department.

Language skills and fluency in the target language (French or German) are developed in more depth, by applying vocabulary and grammatical structures presented via the following topics: School, Identity and Culture, Local area, holiday and travel, Future aspirations and work and International and global dimension. Assessment is in line with the requirements of GCSE French and German, therefore pupils will be assessed in writing, reading, listening, speaking and translating skills.
