Modern Foreign Languages

Modern Foreign Languages

At The Education Village, we highly value language learning as a key skill for UK citizens of the 21st century.

“Languages to open ourselves to the world”


To foster a love of language learning, to open ourselves to other cultures and to deepen pupils’ understanding of the world.

For pupils to be able to communicate in the target language, whether for the purpose of pleasure, travelling, culture or work.

About Us:

Developing language skills will enable pupils to travel, explore countries and cultures, and successfully compete in global economic markets. We actively encourage pupils to opt for a Language at KS4. This will greatly improve pupil employability, as many companies have European and International branches. 60% of UK exports go to non-English speaking countries, and 20% of employers demand employees who can speak a foreign language. Whether pupils decide to go to Carmel College or QE Sixth Form, to further their language studies post-16, or work at home or abroad, choosing a Language GCSE will open doors, create opportunities, and make travel and leisure exciting and interesting.

We currently deliver French and Spanish. There are also extra-curricular opportunities to study German and Italian. 

Our varied enrichment programme includes study visits to post-16 providers, and visits abroad to Barcelona, Paris and Germany. We participate in the Routes Into Languages programme with Northumbria, Newcastle and Durham Universities. We also have a virtual link with our partner school in Martinique, Acajou School.
