French and Spanish are compulsory subjects from Year 7 through to 8. Students can chose languages as an option from Year 9 through to 11. We currently offer AS Spanish in our Sixth Form.


Subject Overview

Years 7 and 8

Throughout the early years we look to embed core skills, exploring the subject through investigations and problem solving.


Years 9 to 11

From Year 9 all students study for their GCSEs. We currently follow the AQA GCSE syllabus.

All exams for this course are sat at the end of Year 11.


Year 12

We offer AS Spanish in the sixth form and follow the AQA syllabus. Due to the demands of the subject, we recommend that students achieve at least a Grade B in GCSE Spanish if they would like to continue the subject at this level.
