Welcome to Harrop Fold

At Harrop Fold, we are committed to making the difference for all our young people.  Our aim is to produce well-rounded young people who are prepared for our ever-changing world. We do this by focusing on the Personal, Social and Academic aspects of education, which will drive our young people to reach their potential and achieve true excellence.

What will my child’s learning be like in MFL?

All students at Harrop will study Languages at KS3 and will have the option to continue their study to GCSE Level where they will follow the AQA GCSE Spanish specification. Students at KS3 will learn the foundations of the topics such as family and friends, free time, festivals, school and work, holidays, and the environment, which they will later build on at GCSE level. All students will be assessed across the four key skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing.

What are we aiming to achieve in the MFL Department?

Language learning should provide a liberation from insularity, our curriculum enriches students’ understanding of the world and exposes them to a diverse range of international opportunities and cultures; whilst fostering their curiosity and enabling students to develop ideas and opinions and communicate these for practical purposes. In MFL we aim to prepare students to become global students by providing an excellent education for all which raises aspirations and deepens their understanding of the wider world. We are committed to a communicative and active approach to language learning, which allows students to be engaged in activities that have realistic and achievable targets. As a result, we hope to inspire a lifelong love of languages and to develop independent language learning skills through an emphasis on linguistic manipulation, grammar and authentic materials.
