Kingsdale Congratulated by Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP, Minister of State for School Standards

 We are delighted to have recieved the letter below from the Minister of State for School Standards, congratulating Kingsdale on the very high numbers of students entered in 2018 for Ebacc subjects and languages GCSEs.

 Pleae click on the image below or the link at the bottom of the page to read the letter in full.

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. All four languages are also offered at A Level. 

Community languages are supported and while we cannot offer lessons in all community languages, learners are supported with specialised exam coaching sessions and achieve outstanding results. 

We are especially pleased to announce our new Gifted and Talented programme which takes place on a Tuesday morning from 8.10am.

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:
