Students study both French and German in Year 7. At the end of the year, they can then decide to focus on one of their languages in Years 8 and 9 or they can carry on studying both. Students are encouraged to take a language at GCSE and they can also continue their studies of French and/or German in KS5.
We organise a trip for Year 7 pupils to visit the Christmas Markets in Lille, a German Exchange programme with a school in Cologne and we have a Year 8 and 9 French residential trip to Normandy.
