Modern Foreign Languages at Sutton Grammar School

Course description

The Modern Foreign Languages Department at Sutton Grammar School will appeal to any student who is interested in communicating with as wide an audience as possible, whether that be abroad or in our own diverse and multi-
lingual capital city. It currently offers AS and A-Level courses in French, German and Spanish.

In the Sixth Form, students revise and consolidate some of the structures already
introduced at the higher tier of GCSE and perfect their understanding and use of grammar. A wide variety of topics are covered during the course which will
broaden and deepen students’ knowledge and understanding of the societies where these languages are spoken. These topics will include current affairs, the media, advertising, tourism, leisure activities, the arts, social issues, youth concerns, historical events and the world of business and industry. Students will also study in depth one book and one film.

Visits abroad are organised on a regular basis. In French, German and Spanish courses, students will be exposed to authentic materials from an early stage and
will be encouraged to communicate in the target language as much as possible since the majority of lessons are conducted in the foreign language.

Entry requirements

All candidates must pass at least eight GCSEs (Grades A*-C) including English,
Maths and a Science. Four of these subjects should be a minimum of a Grade A
and a further two at a minimum of Grade B. (A Grade A* or A is usually required
in the subjects to be studied at A-level).
