As a Modern Foreign Languages department we have the responsibility to develop the cultural and linguistic skills that our students need to become global citizens. We have the privilege of not only preparing our young people for the international labour market but also helping them become thoughtful, compassionate and considerate humans through the exploration of life outside their own corner of the world. By focussing on listening, reading, writing and speaking skills and having high expectations regarding pupils’ learning potential, our curriculum will allow all students to develop the communication, resilience and problem solving skills that they need to be successful in the future, regardless of the path they take.
By the time pupils complete their MFL course at Ecclesfield School, they will be effective communicators, resilient learners and successful problem-solvers. Pupils will have been given the opportunity to explore a wide range of topics relating to life in another country in order to develop their linguistic skills, social understanding and cultural capital.
