Courses and Examinations in MFL

General Overview

At present, students are given the opportunity to study three languages during their time here: French, German and Spanish.

Key Stage 3

Most students will have the opportunity to study at least two languages, starting with French in Year 7 and continuing with this alongside German in Year 8. In Year 9, students focus on one language with the majority continuing with either French or German.  Some students will have the opportunity to study a fast-track Spanish course enabling them to complete the GCSE in three years.

We use the course books below, supplementing these with our own resources:





Year 7

 Dynamo 1



Year 8

 Dynamo 2

Stimmt 1


Year 9

 Dynamo 3 / Studio AQA GCSE

Stimmt 2 / Stimmt AQA GCSE

Viva 1

Key Stage 4

Most students will continue to study a language, some may choose two.  We follow the AQA specification which covers the themes of:  Identity and culture; Local, national, international and global areas of interest and Current study and future employment.

We use the AQA Studio, Stimmt and Viva GCSE textbooks.

Key Stage 5

We are in the fortunate position of being able to offer all three languages at A level and additionally, run an FCSE Spanish course for those who have no or little prior knowledge of the language as part of the Key Stage 5 enrichment programme.
