Boasting some of the best A Level exam results in the area, the Modern Foreign Languages Department encapsulate the blend of passionate and skilled staff and the latest technology to enhance their lessons.

Chary González-Latham, a senior lecturer at Notre Dame Sixth Form College states, results for A-level Foreign Modern Languages are among the best in the country with 100% pass rate in both A Level French and Spanish, 100% A*-B in French in paper 3, 91% A*- B overall in French, and 72% A*-B in Spanish. Our department is extremely robust with over 80 students studying linear courses every year. Chary González-Latham continues; Morgan, an upper sixth A Level Spanish student, said “It is one of the best departments in college, not just because the equipment is so modern and easy to use, but also because the teachers provide unlimited support. The trips to Spain are amazing too”.
