Year 7 Language Options

23 June 2022 Categories Junior

Dear Parents,

I am writing to you to explain the provision of languages in Year 7. All children will study Greek or Arabic (or English Support) and there is a choice of French or Spanish as a second language. Please note that if your child receives Learning Support next year, studying a second language may conflict with this and not be possible.

This is a choice for three years (Year 7, 8 and 9). Year 9 pupils going into Year 10 choose their IGCSE options which may well include the language they have studied in Lower School. It will not be an easy matter to change from French to Spanish or vice versa: there will be no beginners’ class for either language in Years 8 or 9.

We ask that pupils choose their languages online by filling in a google form that has been sent to their emails.

Please, could I ask that this exercise be completed no later than Monday 27th June.

We very much look forward to welcoming your child to the Senior School in September.

Kind regards,

A Gargareta

Assistant Head – Pastoral
