French and Spanish at The Joseph Whitaker School

Course description

The study of a foreign language is a key skill in Britain today. It is a proven fact that languages open doors, whether in the business world or when visiting other countries as a tourist. Studying Spanish or French to a higher level will give you a well-respected qualification, valued by universities whether you study up to AS or A2. Choosing languages at AS as your fourth subject gives you a qualification that is highly regarded by universities across the country.

Universities understand that a language qualification gives students a variety of transferable skills that are essential in many degrees. Previous A-level students have gone on to study law, history, medicine and international business. For many students their A-level in languages has given them the chance to start a new language from scratch as a subsidiary course or spend time abroad during their time at university.
