Modern Foreign Languages
Curriculum Leader: Mr A. Kennedy
We aim to be a thriving and innovative department that enthuses and supports all students to progress as much as possible from their individual starting points. To achieve this, we recognise the need to have consistent high standards and to challenge ourselves to constantly to overcome barriers and actively seek ways to improve how we teach to achieve maximum impact. We want all pupils to enjoy the experience of language learning, find out about other cultures and recognise the importance of this. We all strongly believe and share that it is invaluable for youngsters to grow up with positive attitudes towards other languages and cultures!
The MFL Department consists of 8 enthusiastic teachers and is housed together in a suite of 7 classrooms. Each of these classrooms benefit from a networked computer and an interactive whiteboard. In addition, pupils are able to benefit from using computer suites so students can individually benefit from online resources. Pupils also benefit from accessing online materials at home to complement the courses at each level of learning.
