Hi,

My daughter is starting at WGHS this year. She is especially excited about the languages on offer. Could anyone tell me how the language selction works? I know they have a choice of 4 modern foreign languages (French, German, Spanish and Russian) in Year 7 plus Latin in Year 8. Are they allocated the modern foreign languages in Year 7 or is it their choice?

Thanks

Hi Madhat357. My eldest about to be in year 9 did French, Spanish and Latin for 2 years (no choice to start) then they can choose to drop one. She seems to think they are alternate year selections so this year 7 will be the same…

Hi Erniewise, are you able to say where you heard that it would be Russian and French? My daughter wanted to know what languages would be offered to her (she wants Russian and Spanish) and asked at the recent Teams Induction event but was told that no decision had been made. I was surprised by the response as I would have assumed that timetables for next year were already being drawn up, so not sure if it was just that teacher who didn't know. Thank you

Another parent I know whose daughter is starting there in September phoned up the school and asked.

That’s interesting to hear - it’s all been a bit shrouded in secrecy this year TBH! :o

It varies each year - my friend’s daughter who went last year was allocated German and Russian

Hi,

My daughter was offered a place at WGHS literally on the last day of summer term. I wondered if you had any info on start dates and times for Sept ‘21? I have received a letter inviting her for covid testing on the 6th but I don’t know much else. We’ve missed induction so any advice, information or help would be much appreciated! Much thanks!
