What's it all about?

We’re all about communication

In the Modern Languages department we aspire to develop a curiosity to learn a foreign language, and the culture that goes along with that language. Spanish is taught to all students in Years Seven and Eight. In Years Nine, Ten and Eleven Spanish is taught on Pathway One to GCSE. Students at St Cuthbert’s have the opportunity to take part in trips and exchanges.

We offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities to boost language skills and knowledge of the culture whose language the student is studying. These include after school revision sessions for KS4 students, 1:1 support sessions with class teachers, and homework support sessions during lunch. We have even introduced a Modern Languages Film Club. Once every half term, students will be invited to sit back, relax and enjoy a selected film in Spanish.
