At The GORSE Academies Trust we are committed to ensuring all our students can access a curriculum that is traditional in its high academic standards, including a good spread of GCSE options, including Modern Foreign Languages, whilst also catering to a vocational element.
The Ebacc (English Baccalaureate) is a measure providing information about specific subject performance that includes the sciences, modern foreign languages and the humanities. At The Farnley Academy we aim to encourage as many of our students as possible to study a modern foreign language. We believe that this is inherently valuable for them in developing certain skills but may also provide an entry into varied careers involving working and communicating with people from foreign countries. In an increasingly interconnected world, this is a highly valuable skill-set to obtain. Our 2018 results show that students at The Farnley Academy secured a higher Ebacc average point score compared to students nationally and in Leeds.
