Welcome to Languages

Welcome to the curriculum page for Modern Foreign Languages. The curriculum is delivered by teachers using the language immersion model wherever possible, which means that most lessons are focused on practical communication skills. Lessons are delivered in specialist rooms, supported by interactive whiteboards and a range of websites to which we subscribe.  We hold celebrations in school to mark the European Day of Languages and we have regular outside speakers in lessons.
