    The department has conducted a comprehensive review of the language curriculum provision to incorporate any changes that we believe will give our students the best chance to achieve their true potential. Therefore, in Year 7, students have the fantastic opportunity to experience all three languages ( French, Spanish and Mandarin). At the end of year 7, students will choose the one they want to pursue in year 8 and all the way up to GCSE, in Year 11.

    Through the use of the most up-to-date information and communication technology, we extend students’ opportunities to enhance their language skills and encourage them to become confident and independent linguists. Our wide range of interactive software and resources, as well as end of term projects, makes Mandarin lessons very enjoyable and challenging.
