What the school offers its staff

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 subject.

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.
