KS4 Exam Board and spec

Edexcel GCSE Skills: Listening and Responding, Writing, Reading and Responding, Speaking

We believe languages should be accessible for all students. The new Pearson Edexcel Level 1/Level 2 GCSEs (9–1) in French or Spanish have been developed to help students of all abilities progress and develop a passion for languages, through culturally engaging content.

It is a relevant, engaging and inspirational course of study that will enable  students to use the target language effectively, independently and creatively, so that they have a solid basis from which to progress to A Level or employment in areas as diverse as tourism, business, hospitality, teaching, interpreting in courts and many other areas of working life.
