In Y7 pupils enjoy having two hours each week of French and German, to give them an in-depth experience of studying each of those languages. This changes in Y8, as students will receive two hours of Modern Languages provision each week. This enables us to continue to deliver a wide range of subjects on a weekly basis, such as Art, Music, Drama, IT, DT and Food and Nutrition, as well as ensuring we continue to support our students in their language skills development. Therefore, we ask our Y7s to choose a language to specialise in from Y8 so they can really immerse themselves in it and continue to make excellent progress in their chosen language area.
Please find below a presentation on this language choice selection to support both students and parents/guardians in this process.

In Year 8 students study both History and Geography, at the end of Year 8 we ask students to select one of these subjects going into Year 9. This supports students in building the foundational knowledge and skills required in humanities before starting their GCSE studies later.
Please find below two presentations one on History and one on Geography to support students and parents/guardians in this process.
