French  has been the main foreign language taught at SASM since 2006 and continues to be so in Years 5 and 6. Classics was introduced in Years 3 and 4  in 2019. 

As the national curriculum says, “learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures.” 

Our country has always been internationally engaged and we need the language skills to go with that. SASM children receive a solid grounding in using a foreign language and feel the pleasure and joy that it brings, as well as the curiosity and global awareness it fosters. From 2019, French is taught only in Years 5 and 6.
