German GCSE Overview for Parents

I would like to share with you how best to support your son with his GCSE and how best for him to prepare and ensure a firm grasp of the language and skills required. The video and presentation outline:

  • The GCSE German format
  • The teaching methods we are using
  • How you can support your son

The German Department firmly believes that learning a language is a core life skill. High quality teaching and learning is enhanced with an international dimension that continuously contextualises students’ learning. All our students have the opportunity to experience other cultures and in this context fulfil their academic, social and personal potential. Pupils learn languages in a creative and stimulating environment in which they feel confident to take risks and succeed.

The Department runs an engaging  programme of events including trips and exchanges abroad, day visits, theatre visits and competitions.

If you have any questions, please email me, Mrs Javaid, at

I look forward to seeing you in September!
