Home languages

The Languages Department aims to support pupils who are bilingual or multilingual in gaining accreditation in their home languages.


Pupils can take an extra GCSE and A-level exam in a number of languages apart from French, German and Spanish, such as Urdu, Persian, Japanese, Polish, Tamil, Mandarin Chinese. We capture all home language information of our pupils and advise them regarding possible examinations.

We work with the HoLA project, a city-wide project for Sheffield which aims to raise the educational attainment of bilingual pupils by supporting them to gain a national accreditation in their home language.
