KS4 Specification - Edexcel
German forms part of our large, thriving Languages department, led by specialist staff who share their expertise and enthusiasm for continental culture inside and outside of the classroom.
In German, students immerse themselves in Europe’s second most widely spoken native language through a range of modern digital and audio materials, and through interactive classroom discussion. In Year 7, students are allocated 2 languages out of French, German and Spanish which they study for 3 periods per fortnight. Alongside this, they also study Classical Civilisation/Latin for 2 periods per fortnight. In Year 8 students are asked to indicate two preferred languages from the three studied in Year 7 to continue studying, and they receive four lessons per fortnight for each of these.
All students study at least one language in Key Stage 4 with Italian available as an additional option for our more passionate linguists. We offer A-Level courses in German, French, Latin and Spanish.
We encourage all of our German students to immerse themselves in Germany’s culture and support this with an exchange programme, which is now celebrating its 40th anniversary.

A-Level Religious Studies study day to Cambridge University
The Religious Studies department took a group of Year 12 students to Cambridge University to attend an A Level Religious Studies Study Day at the Faculty of Divinity. The guest speaker, Libby Ahluwalia, is a teacher, a syllabus developer, an examiner trainer and author of several acclaimed GCSE and A level textbooks. The event provided advice and support for students with an interest in theology, religion, and philosophy of religion who may be considering studying these subjects at university, particularly being beneficial for students aiming for high (A/A*) grades.
