Modern Foreign Languages Intent Statement
In the Modern Foreign Languages Faculty, we offer a broad curriculum of French, Spanish, German and Latin. As a faculty, we aim to broaden our students’ horizons beyond the local and into international, cultural and historical spheres. In doing so, we hope to transform them into confident, open-minded and enthusiastic citizens of the World.
Our lessons invite students to engage with language through stories, music, films, visits and so on. In Latin, students are introduced to the language and literature of the Romans so that they may become confident readers of Latin language. Student discover and critique a variety of stories that explore Roman civilisation, from daily life to myth, legend and history.
A Drayton Manor linguist is curious to explore new ideas; able to articulate their own perspectives clearly; precise yet unafraid to make mistakes; able to see the world beyond themselves while clearly perceiving their own place within it.
