The MFL department (Modern Foreign Languages) at Barnsley Academy offers French, German and Spanish to all students in Y7 and Y8. Our pupils have the option of studying a GCSE in one of our MFL subjects at Key Stage 4 as part of Y9 option choices.

Students studying a modern foreign language develop a wide range of communication and literacy skills as part of our MFL curriculum, applying their previous knowledge to a range of topics.

Culture and content of a language are covered across all languages. Pupils are encouraged to use skills they learn in MFL across all subjects they study.
