Curriculum Policies

From September 2023, all incoming students into Year 5 will study the same language (French or Spanish) through their four years at St. Osmund's and then through to Year 11 at Thomas Hardyes. Parents of incoming Year 5 students will be offered the opportunity to state a preference of language, if they have one, during the transition period in the summer term of Year 4. This curriculum decision has been made with the objective of raising standards of language learning so that all pupils have the best chance to succeed at GCSE by studying the same language from Year 5 to Year 11.
