Pupils do GCSE French or German and we have a small class doing FCSE Spanish.   

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.

Pupils 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.
