Welcome to Languages
We believe in languages, that they are the blood of the soul. At Cansfield, we do not just teach languages, but rather, in our classrooms and in our corridors, languages and cultures live and breathe.
We believe in the joy of languages. That they open your eyes, your horizons and your world. That they build your confidence, open myriad doors for the future and give you the opportunity to be someone else. We want our students to have the opportunity to live, love and explore other lands.
We believe in experiencing other cultures first hand and we aim to give every student the opportunity to travel to Germany or France, where they not only put their language skills to use, but also revel in the rich diversity and wonder of being abroad.
We unashamedly believe in multiculturalism and we aim to conquer parochialism, narrow mindedness and xenophobia.
We believe that our consistently outstanding results are inextricably linked to the enthusiasm and expertise of the exceptional students here at Cansfield and our unfailingly absorbing lessons which always aim to engage and enthral.
We believe that the limit of your language is the limit of your world. At Cansfield we endeavour to give you the world entire.
Our curriculum is carefully sequenced to guarantee that all students have a broad, relevant, challenging and exciting experience in languages. We have ensured that the choice of topics provides deep and logical progression over Key Stage 3 and, as well as exceeding national curriculum requirements, we prepare students for travelling to the target language country and using the language themselves.
Curriculum maps for Key Stage 3 and GCSE French and German can be found below. For both GCSEs we complete the Eduqas specification.
