The second specialism is listed on the spreadsheet on the DCSF specialist schools page. It seems that the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust site is less current.

Hence why I am confused, if you call the school they say it is only Science.

Anybody with a DD or DS who can confirm?

Why don't you just call the school again and ask them to explain the discrepancy? It may be that that the languages specialism has "expired" (not sure if they do this but you know what I mean).

I think I'd believe the school over the DCSF list .....

Curiouser and curiouser. Their Sixth Form page says,
Quote:
Additionally, as part of our second specialism in Modern Foreign Languages, students will be offered the opportunity to study for a Certificate in Business Language.

Maybe the clue is in the future tense (but then again most of their website is quite old).

It has a specialism in Science (with an emphasis on Maths) and a second specialism in modern langusge awarded in April this year.

This formed the basis of our appeal and Mr Post confirmed as such so pretty reliable
