Learning French means so much more than the mundane accumulation of grammar and vocabulary. As our students progress through KS3 towards iGCSE, we incorporate authentic language experiences into the curriculum, from sampling French delicacies to learning about “la Francophonie” in La Maison du Québec.
In studying French, students become independent, ambitious, reflective learners. Our teachers bring to life both the culture and the language, with specialisms covering literature, history, politics and art. In doing so, students find out more about Francophone countries and cultures, developing an international outlook, and ultimately becoming ‘World Citizens’.
Outside the classroom students improve their knowledge and understanding through co-curricular activities, including a weekly football club, allowing them to use their language skills in a new setting.
