Modern Foreign Languages

The Modern Foreign Languages department consists of five teaching staff; Mrs K van Zeller (Head of Department), Miss K Armon, Ms F Crame-Kermarrec, Miss R Davey and Mr P Wayman. We also have a French assistant providing authentic French speaking opportunities for our pupils.

Pupils will either study French or Spanish as their main language and have three 100 minute lessons a fortnight. 

Both languages are available as options in Key Stage 4 where we follow the AQA Specfication.

All members of the department are committed to helping pupils to achieve their best in their language studies and always strive to make learning fun and relevant, enabling students to develop their communication and listening skills as well as improving confidence to discuss various topics, express opinions, justify points of view and use a variety of time frames.
