Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Modern Foreign Languages


The MFL department at Oasis Academy Leesbrook will be a happy, vibrant and fun place to be for both students and staff. The curriculum will be designed to inspire students to explore language and create a love of learning that is essential for language development. The curriculum will include everyone through both content and quality first teaching. The curriculum will be uniquely designed around the students at Oasis Academy Leesbrook, who will not be held back from life opportunites through lack of curriculum content and cultural capital, rather, they will have a languages curriculum to rival and better any public school. The curriculum will be personal and relevant to our students, and will embody the Oasis nine habits throughout. Our department will ensure that positive behaviour is rewarded and that contact and relationships with parents and students are positive and consistent.

Our intent is that students will develop into confident speakers, listeners, readers and writers of language and will also develop a curiosity for learning that is not experienced anywhere else due to the personal and positive curriculum, that is tied together with deep cultural capital and deep subject knowledge of staff will enhance the experience of quality language learning even further.

The MFL department at Oasis Academy Leesbrook will not just have a positive effect on students, but also the local community. If students don’t want to go abroad or study languages in the future, with our guidance and quality first teaching, students will at least have had their eyes opened to other cultures and languages, leaving Oldham a more harmonious and positive place as students go out into the wide world at 16 years old, as the curriculum will be designed to guide students to respect differences, locally, nationally and globally, helping students to follow and respect our ethos statement of “ having a deep sense of having hope that things can change and be transformed”.

Although GCSE grades are important for students life chances, what is more important is that students from Oldham are aware of the world that is out there and are culturally and liguistically equipped to venture out into it, or use their skills to make Oldham a better place
