At Mayville, we focus on French in KS1 and Latin in KS2, building on the knowledge and understanding of the children as they progress through the school, culminating in a taster-day visit to the Classics faculty at the University of Cambridge. Cambridge is committed to admitting around 60% of its UK students from state-sector schools. This initiative was designed to give our students, many of whom might not imagine themselves at Cambridge, a glimpse of what it would be like to study at one of the most prestigious universities in the world.
We ensure that teaching is fun and engaging with an emphasis on spoken language skills, music, movement and role play.
We use a variety of resources including other online curriculum schemes.
As an extra-curricular activity, we also offer students the chance to study Modern Languages such as French and Italian, in after-school clubs.
