Learning a language is an important life skill.  It opens doors to other cultures and, in an increasingly competitive world, can give you the edge when it comes to securing a job or a place at university.

The KS3 curriculum is designed to further develop language learning from primary school and to prepare pupils for the rigours and challenges of GCSE.  Units of study are closely linked to those in the GCSE and assessments are carefully designed to match the style of GCSE exams.
