Curriculum – KS3 Modern Foreign Languages

In year 7, students begin learning their first foreign language. This is either French or Spanish depending on the year they enter the school. (This is not a choice, the entire year studies either French or Spanish.)

In year 8, they continue learning this first language, and add the second (again, either French or Spanish.)
