MFL Conference 2017

MFL2017pic1On Mon 4th December, 15 of our Y9 pupils were invited to attend the MFL conference in Cardiff City Stadium.

This was a prestigious 2 day event, which brought together nearly 400 pupils from over 25 schools across South Wales. The focus was to show the range of opportunities that studying a language at GCSE can bring, as well as the sought after skills it develops.


After starting the day with a quiz from the Spanish Embassy, we continued with an extensive tour of the stadium. We then took part in a talk from Routes into Languages, during which university students studying for a variety of degrees shared with us the advantages a language GCSE had given them.

The day was brought to a close with a treasure hunt. Congratulations to Jimmy for winning the Italian competition!
