Radley’s Modern Foreign Languages department is proud of its history of encouraging large numbers of boys to develop their language skills at (I)GCSE and A level.
The current Year 9 French curriculum offers an opportunity to consolidate work done at previous schools and aims to ensure the boys have a firm grammatical foundation for the IGCSE course. For those with no exposure to French before they come to Radley, there is the opportunity of starting French with us as beginners.
The syllabus in German and Spanish is ab initio in Year 9 with the aim of providing a good foundation for a 2-year IGCSE course. Those with knowledge of German or Spanish before they come to Radley can continue studying them in Year 9.
