Modern Languages at St Cuthbert’s
Modern Languages at St Cuthbert's develops four new skills; listening, reading, speaking and writing and is the perfect way for our students to meet and converse with new people and discover new cultures.

We’re all about communication
In the Modern Languages department, we aspire to develop a curiosity to learn a foreign language, and the culture that goes along with that language. Spanish is taught to all students in Years Seven, Eight and Nine. In Years Ten and Eleven Spanish is taught as a GCSE option at KS4. Students at St Cuthbert’s have the opportunity to take part in trips and exchanges.

We offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities to boost language skills and knowledge of the culture whose language the student is studying. These include after school revision sessions for KS4 students, 1:1 support sessions with class teachers, and homework support sessions during lunch. We have even introduced a Modern Languages Film Club. Once every half term, students will be invited to sit back, relax and enjoy a selected film in Spanish.
