The Modern Foreign Languages faculty promotes an enthusiasm for literature, language learning and an awareness of the importance of language skills within the modern world. Many pupils are bi- or trilingual and we aim to build on pupils’ linguistic abilities to develop confidence of expression in German, French and Spanish.
German is a core subject in the school and all pupils follow classes in the subject. Although the working language of the school is English, there is a clear expectation that pupils maintain a high level of fluency and literacy in the local language.
German is taught at a range of differentiated levels, with classes split between those learning German as a first language, and those learning as a second language. Second language learners follow an accelerated course, and it is our aim that all learners achieve proficiency in the language. First language learners follow the local curriculum for German.
