At KS 2, pupils will be already working on many basic topics which take part in Common Entrance and Scholarship Examinations.

At KS 3, it is time for all pupils to develop their abilities in all four skill areas by working on translation, reading comprehension, essay writing, listening comprehension and discussion work. The big part of the learning is for pupils to be able to grow as a potential linguist.

Our pupils enjoy a week away to France as part of a residential trip in year 7 and 8 either in Normandy or Provence/Paris. Also in year 6, pupils are taking part on a day trip to Boulogne.

During the last term, a small selection of pupils from year 5 and 6 compete in the Primary Schools Language Challenge which takes place at the Hillview School in Tonbridge.

All these trips or events are there to help the pupils to discover the wonders of a region and culture and also help pupils to gain more confidence in general when they leave school.
