CLF Post 16 welcomes students with English as an additional Language or those who are multilingual with other languages as specialisms. We offer a programme tailored to supporting students to complete A Levels in languages not normally offered as part of our main curriculum.

Course Overview

As a community languages student, you will be able to be entered for most languages for which the UK has specification. E.g. Bengali, Chinese, Hebrew, Italian, Punjabi, Polish, Spanish, Arabic, French, German and Urdu.

Support from the CLF will be in the form of tutoring in small groups. We are able to also provide text books and other resources via this scheme. Note that students will need to complete much of the work required independently, though CLF Post 16 will always endeavour to support this type of study.


Community languages can support a multitude of different progression routes, from university and further education courses to working abroad. Consider languages as supplementary and an enhancement to all other careers.
