German

Our Aims

We aim to encourage all pupils to develop their linguistic capabilities to the highest possible degree and to provide stimulating and enjoyable learning experiences, which may inspire pupils to continue their study of the language. German is chosen as an optional, supplementary language to French, or instead of French in Year 10 and GCSE level is attained in 3 years instead of 5.
