    What is the average number of pupils taking a language at gcse? I am in non selective comprehensive school and at the moment we have 89 doing gcse out of a 150. I would like to have an idea. Also we achieved 40 percent a-cs last year which is significantly below national average, how do we compare with similar schools?

    we are very much "bog standard" (perhaps our social mix is low end of that? high FSM in any case and 2 or 3 LAC per year group); we have 7 form entry = about 250/year group.
    French in yr 10 is 25 students, Spanish is 47; in yr 11 the numbers are 19 and 35.
    Our results hover between 75 and 90 % as we tend to get more top-end students, but our classes are mixed ability: everything from A-G and we do not turn students away if they want to study MFL at GCSE.
