Why study MFL?
The department is committed to providing varied and meaningful opportunities for pupils to apply and further develop their language skills in real contexts. Year 7 students take part in The Times Spanish Bee. Regular trips to Spanish restaurants are organised, enabling students to experience authentic cuisine and practise their conversational skills. For GCSE and A level students, we offer unique opportunities to get the most out of language learning through our immersion weekends and trips. An annual Spanish immersion weekend takes place in March to help GCSE students prepare for the summer examinations. The 6th Form students are given the opportunity to attend a language college in Madrid to enhance their communication skills and cultural awareness.
