German is a popular modern foreign language for pupils to learn and in September 2012 it becomes the primary foreign language to be taught here.

This is a transitional stage, so there are beginners classes for A, B, C and D groups.  Other pupils will continue with the study of German that they have already begun and some will continue with other languages.

German will support our musical education most directly.  Pupils applying to German and Austrian Hochschule and Universities are required to pass the Goethe Institute's B1 examination, so we will teach pupils up to this level so as to widen their options when they move on to tertiary education.  The B1 examination is at a higher level than GCSE German but pupils should be able to take the GCSE examination if they wish to.


German is taught by Petra Young and Didier Descamps
