The languages department teaches two languages, French and Spanish.

Key Stage 3

In Year 7, 8 and 9, pupils study French.

In Year 9 pupils are given the opportunity to study Spanish as a second language after school.

Key Stage 4

At Key Stage 4 all pupils are required to study at least one foreign language. In Year 10 pupils who have studied Spanish after school in Year 9 have a choice to study Spanish.

The languages department uses a communicative approach with an emphasis on oral skill development.
