Modern Foreign Languages


At Bluecoat Wollaton Academy our aim is to inspire a love of languages and an appreciation and respect for different cultures. Not only can learning another language help students to improve their understanding of English but also knowledge of another language can be a valuable asset when seeking employment and other opportunities later in life. To help promote the passion for learning languages we run a range of extra-curricular activities which provide a relaxed and fun environment for students to develop their linguistic skills. Furthermore, we have regular trips abroad which offer students opportunities to practise their language skills in a real life setting and to experience the culture of the country first hand. Previous trips have allowed students to explore a variety of Spanish cities, including Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia.

AQA GCSE Spanish (8698)

The GCSE content in Languages is split into three themes covering a wide variety of aspects of life in Hispanic countries. Students will use a variety of authentic texts, as well as written and audio resources with an emphasis on grammar, communication and spontaneity. The three themes that make up the GCSE content and their subtopics are:

  • Identity and culture – Me, my friends and family, Technology in everyday life, Free-time activities and Customs and Festivals.
  • Local, national, international and global areas of interest – Home, town, neighbourhood and region, Social issues, Global issues and Travel and tourism.
  • Current and future study and employment – My studies, Education post 16 and Jobs, career choices and employment.

Students are assessed through an exam in each of the 4 skill areas: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing each of which is worth 25% of their overall GCSE grade.
