At Tanbridge House School, we pride
ourselves in teaching French, Spanish and German. All students in KS3 come to Tanbridge
learning French alongside Spanish or German.
We run a three year KS4 which is currently with the AQA exam board. We are slowly transitioning to Edexcel since
the new MFL specification was released last year. It would be beneficial if candidates could
offer two languages at KS3 and at least one at KS4.
In 2023, our results showed that 81% of
all students across French, Spanish and German achieved a grade 4 or
above. 25% of students for Spanish and
German achieved a grade 7 or above. And,
41% of students for French achieved a grade 7 and above. As you can see, we are a strong department
that is looking to maintain this high-quality teaching and passion for our
Enrichment is something that MFL works
incredibly hard on to ensure students develop their cultural capital and
understanding of the language they are learning in the real world. We have successfully run trips to France and
Spain with a cross-curricular trip to Germany with the History department. We also have a theatre come into school to
show the entertaining side of languages.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. All posts are subject to a DBS enhanced certificate.
