Key Stage 3
In Year 7 all pupils begin learning a modern language, initially with their form groups. The pupils are divided into two year groups. Pupils begin learning either French or German/Spanish depending on their year group (beginning subject changes in rotation every year). During Year 7 most pupils are offered a second language from French/German/Spanish which they start in Year 8 in addition to their first language. This structure continues until the end of Year 9. As an enrichment option, able, gifted and talented students are also offered a choice of taking a two year Latin GCSE in Years 9 and 10.
