Stand out in a competitive job market

Research predicts that China will become the world’s largest economy by 2050. Unfortunately, very few people in the UK are taking Chinese GCSE courses. Therefore those young people equipped with Chinese language skills and cultural understanding will no doubt have an edge in the future job market.

Key Stage 4
GCSE: Chinese

Students will follow the AQA GCSE (9-1) in Chinese (Spoken Mandarin)

What will I study?

GCSE Chinese involves speaking, listening, reading, and writing, with exams at the end of the course.

The course offers opportunities for you to study topics such as family life, food and drink, holidays, education, jobs, and lifestyle etc. There are cooking and food tasting sessions to learn how to cook and appreciate Chinese food. Aspects of Chinese culture are heavily embedded in the course.

The Academy organises a trip to China each year for GCSE students. You would have the opportunity to visit the Great Wall of China, Terracotta Army, the Forbidden City, a local school as well as sampling local Chinese food. By joining the trips to China, you will also put your understanding of the language and culture into use.
