Modern Languages – Key Stage 3

As a curriculum area the Modern Foreign Languages department aims to foster a positive atmosphere where students can gain confidence in learning a foreign language and also gain an insight and understanding of different cultures and traditions. In Key Stage 3 students have five lessons per fortnight. In year 7 students study French and in year 8 and 9 Spanish is offered as an additional language to students who have shown greater linguistic ability and flair.

The main programmes of work in each year of Key Stage 3 are summarised as follows with further details contained in schemes of work:
