The Languages Department at Kingsdale Foundation School has expanded greatly over recent years and we are now proud to be one of the few Languages Departments in South London which is able to offer a choice of four languages as part of the curriculum to all pupils entering the school. Pupils now have the option to study French, German, Spanish and Latin at Kingsdale. It is expected that pupils will choose two languages to study when they enter KS3 and will continue with at least one language to GCSE level. French, German,Spanish and Latin are also all offered at A Level. 

We continue to be a leading academic department with early exam entries and outstanding results, with an enthusiastic team of language specialists able to offer mother tongue expertise. Community languages are supported and learners achieve outstanding results following specialised exam coaching sessions.


We are especially pleased to announce our new Gifted and Talented programme for year 8 and year 9 pupils which will be running throughout 2018.

New GCSE and A level qualifications are now in place and Schemes of Work have been modified accordingly. The following are links to the Exam Boards we use at GCSE and A-level: (GCSE) (A level) (A level Latin) (GCSE Latin)

By visiting these websites, you can find links to Past Papers and a wealth of information about the exams, including grade boundaries, assessment information and the Specification

There are many Internet sites to learn languages on line, but we recommend and in particular. Both sites are free to use but memrise does require students to create an account with their own log-in details.
