“Inspiring a love of learning”

‘The lessons and the teachers are really good and I’ve made so many more friends since starting the sixth form’ Emily, Year 12

‘I’ve been able to achieve a level of independence but still rely on the support of staff I know when I’ve needed it’ Beth, Year 13

‘To begin with I was nervous about meeting new people but everyone has been welcoming. The subjects I chose are right for me and the teachers are helpful. Coming here was the right decision’ A new student who started in Yr 12

“I taught in several schools and I was only blessed with sons but I firmly believe that if I had a daughter I would want her to go to this school because I am aware at first hand of the dedication of all of its staff to the care and education of the girls. This school does realise that it is precious cargo that it carries.” A former teacher

Modern Foreign Languages

Meet the teachers:

Mrs B Lawrence - Head of Modern Foreign Languages -

Mrs L Butler - Deputy Head of Modern Foreign Languages -

Miss L Baker - Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages -

Mrs J Wilson - Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages -

Miss C Gardiner - Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages -

Miss M Flint - Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages -


All pupils follow a two year course in a Foreign Language in Years 10 and 11.

Both the French and German courses build on the skills already gained in Key Stage 3 and aim to develop the ability to use the language for practical communication. There will be practice in Listening and Reading, and pupils will also develop their skills to communicate in the spoken and written language. It is hoped that pupils will enjoy their study of a European Language and come to a greater understanding of the country involved.

The course consists of four units. Two tiers of assessment are available – Foundation or Higher. Candidates entered at Foundation level only will have a limit in the grade they can achieve.

  • Unit 1 and unit 2 are listening and reading examinations.
  • Unit 3 and unit 4 test speaking and writing and this is controlled assessment.
  • MFL teachers will decide which tier of assessment is most appropriate for their pupils.

The study of both languages There will be the opportunity for pupils to study both French and German at GCSE level. Pupils interested in this option should tick the appropriate box on their Options Choice Form.
