Modern Languages and Physical Education
Welcome to the Modern Languages Faculty. We are a thriving and successful faculty teaching French and German throughout the school. Our team comprises of a Head of Faculty, Head of German, seven teachers and two part-time foreign language assistants. For many years we have also successfully hosted trainee teachers who have all gone on to find positions in other schools or within this department.
The numbers of students choosing to take French and/or German are growing year on year; and we also support students studying privately to gain qualifications in their mother tongues. In the Sixth Form we have students studying French and German to A Level. Our students are highly successful and often go on to study languages at university: we have one going to Oxford this year.
In addition to our taught curriculum, we also offer a range of extra-curricular activities, including trips to France, Germany and Switzerland. In the Sixth Form, students are offered the opportunity to do work experience in France and/or Germany.
The aim for the department over the next few years is to maintain the high standards already achieved and to continue to attract more students, both in Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5.
