Modern Foreign Languages (MFL)

Welcome to the MFL Department


At Altrincham College students will study either French or Spanish from Years 7 to 9.

At the end of Year 9, for students whom it is deemed suitable will be given the opportunity to take up the extra language and study it through to GCSE level (see links below for further details).

Meet the MFL Department

The department team consists of five members of staff. These are:

Name Title
Miss N Coke Head of MFL
Mrs A Barr-Brooke Teacher of MFL
Ms G Peinado Teacher of MFL
Mrs S Lees Teacher of MFL & Business

Our aim is to give students a love of languages, that takes them from the classroom and academic success to an exciting world of travel, social  and employment opportunities.

Languages are delivered through textbooks and homework books, on-line software, a Sanako language lab and oral work with our Foreign Language Assistant. 

Students are encouraged to develop in all four skill areas:

  • Listening,
  • Speaking,
  • Reading,
  • Writing.

In order to facilitate this, we expect students to have a full set of equipment (pen, pencil, ruler, coloured pencils and a bilingual school dictionary), which should be brought to every lesson.

We take great pride in acknowledging and celebrating the achievements and successes of our pupils, and are delighted at the progress and dedication shown by them. 

Pupils from Year 7 recently competed in the Regional Finals of the Foreign Language Spelling Bee and we also nominate a number of pupils as our 'Half Term Heroes'.
