Important update:

ATTENTION to all MFL year 11 students and their parents
Due to a variety of circumstances the MFL students are missing up to 5 hours of MFL teaching. Therefore, we need to change the dates given to students for the Controlled assessment task for writing on the topic of holidays (15% of GCSE total) .
MFL will be holding the controlled assessment during P1 on 22nd Nov 2013. To prepare for this they will be set the task on the 7th November 2013 during their period 1 MFL lesson. We ask that no students miss either of these lessons. If a student is absent on the day the task is set they need to see their MFL teacher ASAP. If a student is absent on the day of the actual assessment please contact the school office to let them know the circumstances.
Students who are on a dance trip on Friday 22nd November will be doing their CA on Thursday 21st Nov period 5 in R3B with Ms Williams.
Please ensure that your child is working on this piece of assessed work and is well prepared with a 40 word plan that has to be handed in to their MFL teacher before Friday 22nd November.
If there is any problem please contact Ms Williams on: 
MFL department

At KS4 we follow the AQA syllabus for Spanish and French GCSE. Pupils are
externally examined in listening and reading and internally examined in writing and speaking.

Every year we try to alternate a GCSE trip and an A level trip to either Spain or France so that over the course of the 2 years there is an opportunity to go abroad.

Last year there was a very successful Spanish GCSE trip to Northern Spain and this year there was a trip to Paris.
