MFL at KS5
Students who gain at least a grade 5 in their Higher tier GCSE Languages and show an interest in language learning are encouraged to continue studying their language at Meadowhead at A Level.
Students need to have a strong work ethic and be prepared to learn vocabulary regularly, take part in regular speaking discussions in their language and also be willing to travel abroad to perfect their skills. All students should also be willing to commit to a 30 minute speaking session on top of their normal timetable.
