Pupils were taught purely in their language lesson times, ie, one hour three times a week. We did not consider extra lessons necessary. We also did not charge them for this opportunity.
Some of the students who gained a grade C started Spanish in Year 10. All pupils in this class will be taking their AS French in Year 11.
We are confident that this will become the "norm" at Longford and, with this in mind, have identified gifted linguists in Years 7 and 8 to take part in more advanced lessons than their peers.
