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.
