Modern Foreign Languages
The Pembroke curriculum aims to provide a high-quality languages education which will foster students' curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. Students will learn to express their ideas and thoughts, and learn to understand and respond to it speakers, both in speech and writing.
Learning another language gives the possibility to students to learn aspects of another culture and this will make them more open-minded and understanding towards other people. Learning another language encourages students to know more about a country, to go and visit the countries where the language is spoken, to want to perfect that language, it allows them a new way to communicate on an international scale and allows the potential to read great literature in the original language. The aim is that students become increasingly confident at speaking, reading, writing and understanding the language.
From September 2018, students joining in Year 7 will be taught Spanish.
