Modern Foreign Languages

Overview

We offer three languages within the curriculum: French, Spanish and more recently, we introduced Mandarin, working in partnership with The Manchester Grammar School and Swire.

What does our curriculum include?

The curriculum includes a range of topics and pupils develop the skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking within the language that they are learning. There are four dedicated teaching rooms situated on the academy and pupils learn languages in a fun and exciting way, learning about the cultures of different countries where these languages are spoken.

Extra-curricular language clubs run across each key stage and trips are also encouraged to develop a greater understanding about each of the subjects that are being studied. The department also has a language assistant who supports the department and works closely with trainee teachers from The Manchester Metropolitan University who also support our pupils’ language development.
