Modern Foreign Languages

Key Stage 3 Modern Foreign Languages

Modern languages students in Year 7 currently study four hours of French per fortnight.

In Y8, students pick up Spanish as an additional language and learn it side by side with their French lessons. In Y9, they continue to develop both languages as well.

In French, students use Métro and the ‘revised national framework for languages approach to becoming a competent linguist’.

In Spanish, students follow the Mira textbook.
