French

 

Languages are an important part of the curriculum. French is the main language taught with all children from Year 3 to Year 8 having at least one lesson a week. Mandarin is taught in Years 4 & 5 and Spanish is taught to some pupils in the older years and for a term in Years 3 & 4. There is also a very popular Spanish club.

From Reception to Year 2, children have Language and Culture lessons, where a different language is taught each term with the view to increase pupils' appreciation of different languages and cultures.The current programme includes Portuguese, Spanish, French, Italian, Arabic, German, Swedish, Russian and Swahili.
