Modern Foreign Languages
The Modern Languages department is accommodated in three adjacent specialist rooms which are housed in a teaching block which was newly constructed in 1996. In addition to storage facilities in these rooms, there is also a departmental office. Each classroom is equipped with a computer, projector and desktop monitor for teacher use. ICT is widely used in lessons. The department also shares a set of thirty laptops with the History department for pupil use within Modern Foreign Language lessons.
At Key Stage 3 pupils are taught French in two broad ability bands and the main resource used is the Expo coursebook.
Learning any language helps you broaden your understanding of people from other cultures, nationalities and walks of life.
