The Languages Department offers French, German and Spanish as taught GCSEs.
We believe that by studying the language and culture of different countries and regions that we not only learn about our own and become more literate users of English, but they we become able to critique our own culture and engage in active debate about cultural and societal issues.
The Languages Department ensures that rigorous study and assessment is firmly embedded to enable students to access assessments with confidence. Our teachers use a range of techniques to build the confidence of learners to help produce competent linguists.
We also run numerous trips abroad, for example the annual Christmas market trip to Cologne, our trips to Berlin, Lille, Madrid and Paris. The Department exploits the myriad opportunities Central London has to offer and we often visit the Institut Français, the BFI and other cultural institutions to enrich the learning experiences of our students,
