We are an enthusiastic, hardworking and supportive Department and are committed to achieving the full potential of each student. Our lessons offer students the opportunity to develop their communication skills in both the spoken and written word and students are encouraged to communicate using the foreign language as much as possible.
Key Stage 3
Students throughout key stage 3 study French. Pupils are assessed periodically throughout the year on all 4 skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening. Their results and progress are recorded on progress sheets in their exercise books. Homework is set once a week. We actively encourage notes from Parents / Guardians in student planners to alert us of any additional language support required.
Students are encouraged to choose a language at KS4. We offer French and Spanish GCSE courses. Some of our students are dual-linguists and you can study two languages at GCSE level. We strongly believe that we are equipping our students with a subject that will give them an advantage in the work place in the future. In KS4 we encourage students to participate in the Staffordshire- Limousin exchange programme and each year a number of students take up this opportunity.
