Key Stage 3 (2 lessons per week) / Key Stage 4 (3 lessons per week)

All our students study a language in Y7/ Y8, either French or Spanish. They can choose the language in Year 6 if they have a strong preference.

We use Expo (1-2-3) which are lively and easy-to-use French courses for students of a wide range of ability. They are topic–based courses, which are underpinned by a clear grammatical progression.

At GCSE, we use Studio Active Teach, an interactive online resource which brings a wealth of activities, games, audio and video clips to really engage the pupils.

We use Viva Active teach for each year group.

Homework/ Assessment

Each half term, students will complete one formal assessment, about two spelling tests and other homework (if needed such as small paragraph to write/ grammar…) that the teacher judges necessary.
