At Rickmansworth School we are also able to facilitate GCSE Community Languages. The current GCSEs on offer are:
Chinese - Mandarin & Cantonese
Community Languages are offered to students who are able to demonstrate they can listen, speak, read and write in their chosen language. Community Languages are facilitated in one of three ways:
1)Students can sit exams in these languages alongside their main MFL (French or German) and gain an additional MFL GCSE.
2)Subject to passing an internal assessment, students can replace their main MFL with their community language at Key Stage 4. This allows an extra GCSE subject to be chosen from those on offer through the options process.
3)Students who are not continuing with MFL at Key Stage 4 can, subject to passing an internal assessment, sit exams in these languages and gain an additional GCSE.
