A Level German

The A-level specification builds on the knowledge, understanding and skills gained at GCSE. It constitutes an integrated study with a focus on language, culture and society. It fosters a range of transferable skills including communication, critical thinking, research skills and creativity, which are valuable to the individual and to society. The content is suitable for students who wish to progress to employment or to further study, including a modern languages degree.

The A-Level German class is normally very small, which means that students benefit from extensive teacher input and support as students make the jump from GCSE to A-level. Students have 5 hours of lessons a week and are also invited to attend MFL events at other Peterborough schools during the academic year such as a film night at Kings School, Peterborough.

The specification has been designed to be studied over two years.

This qualification is linear. Linear means that students will sit all their exams at the end of the course.
