Modern Foreign Languages


In Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) we learn to communicate in French, and about the culture of French-speaking countries. All French lessons are taught by our two French specialists. We work closely with the English teams across school to ensure that the grammar and vocabulary knowledge developed in English lessons is consolidated when learning the grammar and sentence structure of French.



Speaking another language:

  • Improves memory, concentration and ability to multi-task
  • Reinforces English and literacy skills
  • Improves career prospects (most people in the UK speak at least 2 languages every day)
  • Improves understanding of the wider world
  • Provides an opportunity to make friends, travel and enjoy more music, food, films, etc.
  • Makes your brain healthier – it even delays dementia!

MFL is a required subject at GCSE/EBacc.
