We are a faculty of four members of staff with a variety of teaching experience, who have all spent time living and working abroad. We are enthusiastic about our subject and keen to ensure that our students develop a love of learning other languages and about other cultures.

Key Stage 3

The MFL course at Key Stage 3 provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to access the GCSE course in Key Stage 4. During the KS3 curriculum we will be developing the four skill areas; listening, speaking, reading and writing. Our aim is to provide exciting opportunities for students to develop their confidence, improve their independent learning skills and to foster a love of other languages and cultures. We do not use a course book as our lessons are based on a wide range of resources. Students will be set homework on a regular basis using the Vocab Express website but we also encourage students to develop their language learning skills using other methods such as flashcards, www.memrise,com, www.quizlet.com, BBC Bitesize amongst others.
