In years 9, 10 and 11 students who have opted to study a GCSE in a modern foreign language will follow the AQA course. There are three themes: identity and culture; local, national, international and global areas of interest; current and future study and employment. We aim to cover one theme in detail each year. In the summer term of year 11 students will sit all final exams. The exams will cover speaking, listening, reading and writing skills and will be worth 25% each. Students will be entered at either foundation or higher tier.
