Spanish (MFL)

In Spanish, we follow a helical curriculum model which allows students to build on prior knowledge and develop skills throughout their time at Kelvin Hall.


Our aim is to provide a high quality MFL education which enables students to develop a love of learning for foreign languages alongside understanding and acceptance of a range of different cultures.  Through their language learning, students will recognise the importance of MFL on a global scale. Their studies will give them the skills to communicate in the target language as well as to develop the confidence and independence needed to prepare them for further education and the world beyond.


Hours per week: 2

Students are taught the National Curriculum for MFL across years 7-8.  Teaching is topic based to cover the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing.




Exam board: Edexcel
