I really enjoy learning German here because the lessons are always enjoyable and I learn a lot. My teacher always makes sure there is something for me to do when I finish and helps everyone to the best of their ability.

German Student

MFL are by far some of my favourite lessons. I love to learn new words in different languages and I am fairly confident that I could reach my goal of being a translator one day. It is great that they let me do both French and German (the only one to do so) and the lessons are great at getting ready for future GCSEs - as well as learning the cultures along the way. Es ist gut.

Dual Linguist Student

French is one of my favourite lessons because the lessons are fun and engaging. I get support from my teachers but they also challenge me to help me do the best work I can.
