Key Stage 4
The vast majority of students continue with a foreign language French, German, Spanish, Italian or Mandarin at GCSE. It is strongly advised that our most able linguists continue studying two languages at GCSE since this is highly desirable and valued by employers and Higher Education.
All students take the GCSE examination of listening and reading at the end of Year 11 but will sit their controlled assessments in writing and speaking assessments throughout Year 10 and Year 11. The examination board used for our GCSE language qualifications is Edexcel.
