Areas of study include relevant, usable knowledge and skills that students can use as a foundation for their learning at GCSE and beyond. Topics include: Family and Friends, New Technology, Holidays and Free Time. The skills and knowledge developed in Key Stage Three, fully prepare students for the challenges of GCSE Languages.

Key Stage Four
At Key Stage Four, students have the opportunity to choose their language specialism. Our current language offers include French and Spanish. Within each of these disciplines, students are challenged in learning to read, write, speak and listen in their additional languages within a variety of relevant circumstances. Students are assessed externally and each language follows the AQA specification for that particular specialism.

Key Stage Five
By Key Stage Five, we expect students to be extremely proficient in their chosen language of study. In Post 16, students have the opportunity to study either French or Spanish at A Level. Studying a language at A Level is particularly challenging, however, is incredibly rewarding and looked upon highly by all universities and employers. Students are challenged at Key Stage Five to only speak in their additional language during lesson time, building capacity for fluency and the potential to study a language at degree level.
