“The limits of my language are the limits of my world.” – Wittgenstein

KS3 Curriculum:

Pupils have Year 7 to consolidate and build upon language they have learned at primary school through the medium of French in mixed ability classes.

In Year 8, setting takes place.

Sets 1-3 have two hours of French study and two hours of German study a week.

Sets 4-6 study French only for two hours a week

This arrangement continues in Year 9 when pupils start to study GCSE themes to help them make option choices. Pupils in sets 1-3 are strongly encouraged to study at least one language to GCSE level. Pupils in sets 4-6 are invited to continue with French if they wish to.
