Key Stage 5

 

Modern Foreign Languages – Going Global
  
Are you content to be restricted by the confines of a small section of society? Or do you want to broaden your horizons and embark on an exciting journey to experience and discover other cultures?                              
 
Do you appreciate the cultural richness of our society?
Do you want to take your place in our world as a global citizen?
Are you interested in discovering different countries, cultures, communities and people?                                                         
Do you like to travel?                                                                
Do you enjoy communicating with a variety of people?
Do you enjoy using computers, listening to music and watching films?
Do you want to go to a good university?
Do you want to find a well-paid and exciting job? 
 
If you answer yes to more than three of these questions you should consider studying a Modern Foreign Language in the sixth form.
 
French, German and Spanish are highly valued subjects by universities and are considered excellent combinations with most other subjects, for example, Science, English, Technology, Art and Business, to name just a few.
 
Learning a Foreign Language teaches you to communicate, to listen and to discuss. It is far more than a subject to study at school. It is a window on the wider world and a doorway through which you can enter that world and take your place there.
