German Department

German  is offered to all students at Farringtons School as an option in Year 7 to be taken alongside Spanish and to be continued until the end of Year 9. In KS4 students have the choice of studying the AQA GCSE course. Finally, in the  Sixth Form, students will follow the 2 year AQA A Level course.

Every two years we organise a trip to Cologne for the Christmas market.


We follow the Echo textbook and students are actively encouraged to reach their full potential in listening, speaking, reading and writing to the very best of their abilities.


During 2 years students will prepare this new AQA examination with the textbook AQA GCSE German Higher.

A Level

For 2 years   students will follow the new A Level AQA examination with the following textbooks, AQA German A Level Year 1 and AS and AQA German A Level Year 2.
