Year 7 Language Option

June 2022

Dear Parent/carer

REF:   MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGES OPTION CHOICE AT END OF YEAR 7

As you will be aware, your son or daughter has now completed one year of study in MFL, covering two different languages: French and Spanish.  Pupils have now learned the basics in both of these languages to a good standard and are ready to develop their language skills further in year 8.

To ensure that all pupils continue to make good progress and achieve good outcomes in one of these languages, we have taken the following decision.  Pupils will pick one language to study in year 8 to embed the knowledge and skills required should they wish to pick this as a GCSE option.  We will endeavour to place all pupils in their first preference language where possible.  However, we CANNOT GUARANTEE that you will be placed in your first choice of language.

Please take some time to have a brief a discussion with your child about what language they would prefer to study in year 8, as this could potentially be the language they study through to GCSE.  It will NOT be possible to change this option once study has begun in year 8.

Please express a preference by completing this online form with your Child’s name, tutor group and preferred language option (French or Spanish). Please click on the link below to complete the form.
