The Bulmershe School enjoys a highly active and busy Modern Foreign Language Department. We offer French and Spanish in Year 7 through to GCSE and A Level. In Years 7 and 8, students study both French and Spanish simultaneously for 1 hour a week each and then can choose to continue with a language to GCSE.

In each year group, students develop their skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing. The expectations MFL holds of our students is high and we are very proud of the success and high standards our students achieve.

The MFL Department, composed of 5 specialist teachers, has a very positive and exciting vibe and continues to develop in new and exciting ways. Each September we celebrate European Day of Languages, offering taster lessons in other languages as well as cultural activities and quizzes throughout the school and in other departments. Most recently we have celebrated all things Irish, Italian, Nepalese and German.

We are fortunate to have a designated teaching area, including a small computer room for A Level and small group teaching. We have a wide range of resources available for use and also subscribe to various online resources that students can access from home.
