MFL at The Bulmershe School
The Bulmershe School enjoys a highly active and busy Modern Foreign Language Department. We offer French and Spanish in Year 7 through to GCSE and A Level. At the end of Year 7, students can choose to study one or two languages and then decide to continue at GCSE. In each year group, students develop their skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing. The expectations MFL holds of our students is high and we are very proud of the success and high standards our students achieve. The MFL Department has a very positive and exciting vibe and continues to develop in new and exciting ways. Each September we celebrate European Day of Languages, offering taster lessons in other languages as well as cultural activities and quizzes throughout the school and in other departments. Most recently we have celebrated all things Irish, Italian, Nepalese and German. We are fortunate to have a designated teaching area, including a small computer room for A-Level and small group teaching. We have a wide range of resources available for use and also subscribe to various online resources that students can access from home.
Should you wish to contact a teacher in this department please email the head of department and copy to our office email. (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This will mean we can ensure a swift response.
