How do languages work?

How will my child choose which language they would like to study?

All Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 pupils will be required to sit a short language quiz, for each of the languages we have on offer. These language quizzes are required to be completed when submitting your child's subject selection. Each language quiz will generate a personalised reference code upon completion, with each reference code coinciding with an ability level.

Our Admission Team will then use the reference code to place your child into a suitable language ability class. The language ability classes are: Beginner 1, Beginner 2, Intermediate 1, Intermediate 2 and Upper Intermediate.

During the subject selection, you will also be asked to rank the languages in order of preference. This is because your first language preference is not guaranteed; due to demand or potential timetable clashes.
